"For scholars and laity in the fields of race studies or philosophy, this book offers an important examination of the theoretical foundations and issues of social and political philosophy. The uniqueness of this book is that the essays offer both support for and critiques of the foundational assumptions and arguments underlying different scholarly/activist positions. The volume also provides a theoretical discussion of how to move away from leadership--oriented activism/scholarship and toward democratic/cooperative-oriented activism/scholarship. Though clearly rooted in philosophy, chapters are accessible to readers of all levels. This would be an excellent book for class discussion and student research." -- L. L. Lovern, Valdosta State University, CHOICE
