“[The End of Anger] offers a useful heuristic device for understanding the evolution of race relations. Cose’s collection of intergenerational interviews provides tangible evidence of the improvement in racial dynamics over the last fifty years.”— New York Times Book Review

“A refreshing, readable, and comprehensive look at race in twenty-first-century America.”— Publishers Weeklyend-of-anger-photo

“Cose expertly interweaves his own research into the opinions of others, creating an intriguing dialogue about the future of America as class becomes king.”— Ebony

“A fascinating read. . . . The End of Anger is a worthy look at where we are and where we’re headed.”— Philadelphia City Paper

“Provocative. . . .You never forget the first or second time you read Ellis Cose’s The Rage of a Privileged Class. . . . Look for even more robust conversation [with] The End of Anger.”— Essence

“Ellis Cose defines what racial equality means to a new generation.”— Uptown Magazine

“The most important book of 2011, hands down.”— Ian Reifowitz, DailyKos.com

“Once again Ellis Cose holds up a powerful lens to bring to light the thoughts, dreams, and perspectives of African Americans today. His findings and insights are an important contribution to the national conversation on race, class, and opportunity in America.”— Geoffrey Canada, educator

“The End of Anger is a masterpiece in illuminating one of the most significant issues in the history of our republic. But it’s more than that it’s a case study of how our values are transmitted and realized through history; of how social conditioning affects perception; and of how a truly gifted journalist can look at even the most painful realities through a filter of compassion and sympathy. It is one of those books every American of conscience should read.”— Robert M. Morgenthau, former district attorney of New York County

“Ellis Cose brilliantly explains why black Americans have become less angry, more hopeful, and more likely to transcend old racial boundaries over the past decade, even as the least educated members of every racial-ethnic group have fallen behind. His eloquent account will inspire hope and pride in black and white Americans alike but it will also raise disquieting questions about whether we can consolidate and extend the impressive gains he describes.”— Stephanie Coontz, author of A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s

“The most authoritative accounting I’ve seen of where our country stands in its unending quest to resolve the racial dilemma on which it was founded. With seasoned insight backed by groundbreaking research, Ellis Cose brings us up to date on the transformations that were both wrought by and reflected in the coming of Obama. Cose is among the most rigorous and original observers of the national pageant, and his new book is a moving, sometimes startling, appraisal of this pivotal moment in our history.”— Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Carry Me Home

“The End of Anger may be the defining work on America’s new racial dynamics. Deeply researched, artfully reasoned, and beautifully written, this remarkable and essential book takes you on a revealing journey through recent American history and provides a compelling view of its possible future. Cose deepens our understanding not just of race but of the power of generational transformation.”— Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union

“The End of Anger, by Ellis Cose, is a tremendously important book — gracefully done, painfully perceptive and, as always in his writing, fearless in its honesty about the ways that black and white Americans continue to be distanced from each other even at the topmost levels of success.”—Jonathan Kozol, author, Savage Inequalities

“The End of Anger is the most authoritative accounting I’ve seen of where our country stands in its unending quest to resolve the racial dilemma on which it was founded. With seasoned insight backed by ground-breaking research, Ellis Cose brings us up to date on the transformations that were both wrought by and reflected in the coming of Obama. Cose is among the most rigorous and original observers of the national pageant, and his new book is a moving, sometimes startling appraisal of this pivotal moment in our history.”— Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Carry Me Home

“Like the great Miles Davis, who defined both cool jazz and the hard bop that succeeded it, Ellis Cose has brilliantly chronicled an epochal black Age of Rage and now, with equal originality, the End of Anger. With lucid prose and analytical precision, Cose documents the paradigm shift from black rage to a post-angry racial politics in the Age of Obama. In the process, he illuminates the contemporary racial landscape while avoiding the illusion of a post-racial era,  and the romance of a static racial condition. This is engaged social history and critical analysis at its best!”—Michael Eric Dyson, author, Know What I Mean
