Soft Cover. Very Good/Paper Wraps. First Edition. 6 x 9 ". Brown illustrated wraps with titles and illustration in white on front panel.

Robinson writes in the introduction, "A review of the record of achievement over the past two decades is both rewarding and encouraging because it sets forth the incontrovertible evidence that the American dream is possible of fulfillment. Moreover, when the record is viewed as a whole it serves to inspire greater effort toward realizing the possibilities of the future and increased faith in the democratic process. . . . This book simply reviews the highlights in the most essential areas where progress toward equal opportunity and full freedom to live, work, and create has been made in recent history. Nor does the book outline the areas where discrimination and segregation still exist. That story is already well known." Written before the great civil-rights events of the 1960s, this book offers an interesting take on race relations with essays by such authors as Robinson, Robert L. Carter, Robert M. Cipes, J. Oscar Lee, Hugh M. Smythe, Mabel M. Smythe, Julius A. Thomas, and William R. Hudgins. 76 pages, with black-and-white drawings as chapter headings. Scarce. Size: 6 x 9 ". Bookseller Inventory # 001334
