"A study of the ideas of Robert Park.... It is an interesting and well written piece of work with useful bibliography and notes. It is an excellent introduction to the subject of race relations theory in American sociology in the period from 1920 to 1970. The theoretical and ideological differences in the views of Park and Myrdal on race relations relations are briefly examined at the end of this short study. In a sense, the major purpose of the book is to rehabilitate Park as a race relations theorist who is relevant today. Wacker is quite convincing in his attempt. Lower division undergraduates and up." - Choice
