Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Embraces the leading edge in critical race theory.

What is whiteness? What is gained by claiming it as a critical perspective in anti-racism work? How do whiteness studies both redeem and assert the white subject? Working through Whitenes explores these questions through essays by Canadian, American, British, and Australian scholars, reflecting the broad array of academic inquiry into whiteness in the areas of law, ethics, education, feminism, politics, psychology, sociology, criminology, and social geography. Rarely has knowledge of whiteness as the practice of social domination been drawn from this far and wide. By embracing the leading edge in critical theory, this book is a crucial addition to the growing literature on whiteness.

“The international focus is quite important. It will not only help students and others to recognize that whiteness is a global issue but also will broaden the academic dialogue on whiteness, which has been dominated by U. S. academic perspectives. This book will contribute to the growing number of discourses that are attempting in profound ways to bring the field of white studies to bear on questions of schooling, education, and educational administration within the context of concerns for equity and social justice.” — Nelson Rodriguez, coeditor of Dismantling White Privilege: Pedagogy, Politics, and Whiteness
