    Aside from me pointing out that this book was both monumentally uplifting and monumentally depressing, it only seems appropriate to let the people speak for themselves Alex Berteau, partner at a black law firm There seemed to be a positive change in the seventies Whatever momentum was there went bang, after Reagan became president I m not about the business of tearing down Ronnie ...

    The thing I love about Studs Terkel s books is how it immediately calms you down and makes you look at your fellow man a little different I should amend that If you are the sort of person who demands that everybody looks at things the same as you, has the same opinions as you, and lives the same way you do, then you may be frustrated by his books Because what really comes out in his short interviews with ordinary people from all different backgrounds are the complexities of humanity.In his bo The thing I love about Studs Terkel s books is how it immediately calms you down and makes you look at your fellow man a little different I should amend that If you are the sort of person who demands that everybody looks at things the same as you, has the same opinions as you, and lives the same way you do, then you may be frustrated by his books Because what really comes out in his short interviews with ordinary people from all different backgrounds are the complexities of humanity.In his books are the voices of a welfare mother sitting next to you on the bus as well as a multi millionaire CEO What you learn is that everybody, no matter their background, has something interesting to say if you just stop talking and start listening They all have their own sets of opinions and different ways of looking at things.In the past few years, I ve read Race , The Good War , Hard Times , and Will the Circle Be Unbroken With the possible exception of the last of those books, which was missing som...

    Studs Terkel always had a strong belief in the wisdom of the masses Too often American media and establishment figures treat the public like we are too stupid to understand anything I think the books that Studs Terkel put together over his long career prove this notion wrong Regular people know the score And if you can get them to let their defenses down and open up, Terkel s greatest skill, you will get insights into the human condition that no PhD s dissertation would ever reveal.Another t Studs Terkel always had a strong belief in the wisdom of the masses Too often American media and establishment figures treat the public like we are too stupid to understand anything I think the books that Studs Terkel put together over his long career prove this notion wrong Regular people know the score And if you can get them to let their defenses down and open up, Terkel s greatest skill, you will get insights into the human condition that no PhD s dissertation would ever reveal.Another thing I like about the books by Studs Terkel, from The Good War to Hard Times to this book, is the wide variety of perspectives that he brings together Over the course of a book you get the point of view of hundreds of different people all talking about the same subject When you come at an issue from so many directions you end up getting a really comprehensive, well rounded understanding.This book wasn t strict...

    Changed my life by opening my eyes to how racism works, how pervasive and insidious it can be and also how it hurts people, how it changes people, and how it breaks down sometimes.This book also proves that racism is real which may sound weird if you grew up knowing it was re...

    Sad to say, it would seem we have not made much progress in the two decades since this book has been published in fact, in some ways, we ve regressed.

    Studs Terkel has always impressed me with his ability to get people to speak their mind And in an era before the Internet and Social Media, the tone of his work radiated an authenticity that is now sorely lacking His book, RACE, was no exception to this overarching characteristic of his legendary career.Although writtenthan 20 years ago, RACE was prophetic in its summation of the extent of the problem of racism in the US It wasn t a call to action It wasn t a analysis of the situation Studs Terkel has always impressed me with his ability to get people to speak their mind And in an era before the Internet and Social Media, the tone of his work radiated an authenticity that is now sorely lacking His book, RACE, was no exception to this overarching characteristic of his legendary career.Although writtenthan 20 years ago, RACE was p...
