Most widely held works by Gunnar Myrdal
An American dilemma : the Negro problem and modern democracy by Gunnar Myrdal( Book )

156 editions published between 1944 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tackled the stark contradiction between America's ideal of equality and the realities of racism against African-Americans, as well as other oppressed groups. In it, Swedish economist Gunnar Myrdal argued that rampant discrimination not only negated America's founding principles, but also diminished its productivity and advancement. Cited in the landmark segregation case Brown v. Board of Education, the book greatly influenced perspectives on race relations and helped form the foundation for the civil rights movement

Dark ghetto : dilemmas of social power by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

20 editions published between 1965 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 2,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a skilled indictment of the terrible failure of our affluent society, even in the ‘liberal’ North, to meet the racial problem it has created and now perpetuates -- a state of degradation and frustration for millions of its citizens. The immediate cause of the "pathology of the ghetto" is not, Clark argues, the fact of segregation. Rather it is the loss of status and self- respect, the frustration, the overwhelming sense of impotence and defeat that cause apathy, crime, addiction, broken families, squalid living conditions, and all the other symptoms of social pathology. Clark raises the questions, attempts some answers, and proposes a strategy for change within the framework of our present economic and social system. This book is intellectually stimulating; it is necessary reading for everyone interested in the most critical of our domestic issues and should be required for those whites who honestly seek to participate in the civil rights struggle
