View Author Bio
Hamilton, Dona Cooper : City University of New York
Dona Cooper Hamilton is associate professor of social work at Herbert H. Lehman College, City University of New York.
Hamilton, Charles V. : Columbia University in the City of New York
Charles V. Hamilton is Wallace Sayre Professor of Government at Columbia University.
"Documents that, contrary to popular misconception, the civil rights agenda is an American agenda and not African-American agenda. Organizations like the national Urban League and the NAACP have throughout their history labored to persuade this nation to live up to the edict in our Constitution that 'all men are created equal' and to honor the Preamble which calls upon government to 'promote the general welfare'."
--Hugh B. Price, President, National Urban League
"The Hamiltons´ lucid study of the history of policy making in social welfare, from the New Deal to the present, is written from a black perspective and is meticulously researched and documented. Black civil rights organizations, seeking a universal social welfare system, jobs in the regular work force, and national hegemony over government programs, worked for policies that comprised a dual agenda: the pursuit of race-specific issues and the fight for a social welfare agenda that included all citizens regardless of race. Part of the story is that of the clash of the two agendas. . . . Highly recommended."
