Reviews

"This text is outstanding in multiple ways. It blends history, theory, and contemporary analyses of issues that students can connect to; it integrates important empirical data which help support the narrative; and it includes analysis of past and current public policies designed to address racial inequality." Armando Mejia, Cal State-Long Beach

"I am impressed by the critical genius of the author. I am confident that this book will encourage my students to feel more comfortable talking about race and be better prepared to confront racial inequalities from an academic and well-informed perspective. This book takes a bold step at encouraging racial justice and stimulating conversation for students to have in the classroom and beyond." Gail Wallace, University of Alabama-Birmingham

"The overall topical coverage of the book is excellent, balanced, and complete. The book is theoretically robust and unique in that it effectively encompasses both a historical and sociological approach. The coverage and comprehensive nature of the chapters is impressive." Michael Aquino, Pima Community College
