Hi, I'm an Economics major with career interests in both Business and the social sector, and I'm enrolled in an African American History course this semester. For our final paper due in December, our professor has given us a pretty unique assignment. He is asking us to pick two books that relate to both our college major (for me, Econ), and what we are studying in class (American racial struggle and history), and then to write a comparitive paper on the books. The goal is to have us take away something from this history course that will benefit us in our primary area of study. So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for books that I should read to complete this assignment. If you know of a good book that deals with contemporary or classic race issues which somehow connects them with Business, Economics, Economic Development, etc. then I'd love to hear about it! Also, if you have any suggestions for a good book I might want to read in general as an Econ major please feel free to share! Thanks.
