Botsch samples current attitudes of southern blue-collar workers, both black and white, toward work and race and questions whether these workers can overcome racial barriers to form a populist-style coalition aimed at improving their shared economic condition. A strong sense of individualism, a general distrust of the government, and a failure to see links between daily personal problems and political choices are major deterrants to political action.

Originally published in 1981.
