Start by marking Gunnar Myrdal and Black-White Relations: The Use and Abuse of an American Dilemma, 1944-1969 as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. As important as Myrdal's The American Dilemma was when it was published in 1944 and for the quarter-century thereafter, the story of how it came to be is similary significant, as it has all the drama of a great work of fiction but is thankfully (yet often disturbingly) real. The amazing thing about Myrdal's book is that it stayed relevant and seminal for so long, a fact that Southern notes in an understated way.

An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy is a 1944 study of race relations authored by Swedish Nobel-laureate economist Gunnar Myrdal and funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York. The foundation chose Myrdal because it thought that as a non-American, he could offer a more unbiased opinion. Myrdal's volume, at nearly 1,500 pages, painstakingly detailed what he saw as obstacles to full participation in American society that American blacks faced as of the 1940s.
