Feminist, Iconoclast, and Angry Black Woman Julianne Malveaux.

Columnist, commentator and "mad economist" Julianne Malveaux. Her new book "Sex, Lies and Stereotypes: Perspectives of a Mad Economist" (Pines One Publishing) is a compilation of her newspaper columns. She's also a commentator on PBS and CNN. Malveaux says everything is economic from gender relations to job applications to toxic waste. The issues, she says, are issues of "who has and who doesn't, who will and who won't." Malveaux likes to incite, inspire and make people think.

Contributing Editor and essayist for Newsweek magazine Ellis Cose. His new book, "The Rage of a Privileged Class: Why are Middle-Class Blacks Angry? Why Should America Care?" (HarperCollins) is about what many middle-class blacks feel, but few white americans understand: that middle-class blacks still struggle against racial stereotyping, discrimination, and alienation, despite their financial success and their best efforts to "play by the rules." Cose argues that many white americans make assumptions about Blacks which are at odds with reality.
