The Face of Discrimination documents the extent, character, and implications of race and sex discrimination at work and in housing, drawing from a rich body archived discrimination suits themselves. It moves beyond traditional social science research on the topic and grounds the reader in the reality of discrimination as it is played out in the actual jobs, neighborhoods, and lives of real people.
