How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class

Ian Haney López

  • The first book to systematically explain how racism has evolved since the civil rights era.
  • Draws upon cutting-edge scholarship in history, sociology, and psychology, but translates them into accessible terms illustrated through contemporary examples.
  • An eye-opening account of how racial appeals generate broad enthusiasm for policies that injure the middle class.
