Synopsis

Race and Wealth Disparities is a multidisciplinary reader on the subject of race and wealth primarily, yet not exclusively, within the United States. The authors represent a number of social science and humanities' perspectives from anthropology, economics, education policy, history, literature and law, to management, political science, social psychology and sociology. The authors also represent an attempt to create a dialogue across institutions with four of the authors representing Fisk University, a historically Black University. Because of this unique approach of having authors from ten different disciplines address questions of race and wealth, this study is able to provide substantive information about race and wealth disparities as well as giving the reader a greater and more textured understanding of multidisciplinary work. In this regard, the text models a multidisciplinary conversation in a way that is meant to help others enter into interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work.

The essays came out of a series of workshops between professors from fourteen different disciplines and four different universities, therefore, the essays are meant to explain the disciplines these professors represent as well as to convey and analyze the subject at hand.
