Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Offers discussion and examples of how white scholars can use anti-racist scholarship as part of the long-term civil rights struggle to create real equality in the United States.

Most would agree that racism is a moral and spiritual violation of the human spirit and the human community and one of the most destructive social problems in the United States. In this thought-provoking and challenging book, Scheurich contends that white racism is interwoven within social science research, social institutions such as public education, and society in general, directly destroying any legitimate claim to democracy. This volume offers discussions and examples of how white scholars can use anti-racist scholarship as part of the long-term civil rights struggle to create real equality in the United States. Other scholars, who both agree and disagree with Scheurich's perspective, contribute to the volume.

“…James Scheurich demonstrates how scholarly and research practices contribute to and interrupt white racism.” — Teaching Education

“Scheurich's work is an effort to challenge white scholars to at least begin to question their own position, and how it impacts their understanding of schooling, society, and even on some levels, national identity. There are other scholarly works that highlight anti-racist work, but this book is different, in that it not only exemplifies the struggles, but also clarifies some aspects that many white scholars have not been mindful of in the past.” — Frances V. Rains, The Pennsylvania State University

“This book is creative in its polyphonic textuality and its 'multivoicedness,' and it continuously interrogates the ontological and epistemological normality of whiteness. It shows rather than tells what the process of anti-racism might look like. Many other books in the field of whiteness studies somehow seem to make 'closure.' This book leaves the discussion wide open for a constant revisioning.” — Sofia Villenas, coeditor of Race Is... Race Isn't: Critical Race Theory and Qualitative Studies in Education
