Summary
"The early chapters of this book provide a description of the historical and current state of race and gender inequality and explain how employers persist in seemingly irrational actions even in the face of more profitable alternatives. The book then turns to an introduction of the five primary social and economic theories of wages - marginal productivity theory, human capital theory, dual sector theory, union strength theory, and internal labor market theory - followed by a review of the implications for pay differentials between blacks and whites. The book concludes with a review of the trends and causes of white male exclusionary attitudes toward blacks and women."--Jacket
