For his eighth book on social institutions, Packard takes up the structure of exclusion and discrimination devised by white Americans to maintain first-class social and economic status for themselves and denying it primarily to black Americans but also Hispanics, Asians, and others. His story focuses on the former Confederacy, where the structure was codified in statutes until the triumph of the civil rights movement. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
