From the dustjacket: During recent years, the problem of race relations in the United States has become our most urgent domestic issue. It has been surrounded by a climate of crisis that has aroused emotions, exaggerated tensions, and left us looking short sightedly only at the immediate situation. The finest contribution made by the author is that he sets the problem in perspective. He traces the history of prejudice and discrimination, showing that they have varied in pattern from age to age and country to country. Dr. Pope surprisingly points out discrimination based on race alone is a comparatively recent phenomenon. In the earlier centuries of man's development, no particular importance was attached to skin pigmentation. Dr. Pope examines the causes of racial stress and looks at the scientific facts about racist superstitions. He is concerned particularly with the involvement of the church, for he is a Christian writer who sees the problem within the framework of his faith.
