Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

What is Critical Race Theory and why is it under fire from the political right? This foundational essay collection, which defines key terms and includes case studies, is the essential work to understand the intellectual movement

Why did the president of the United States, in the midst of a pandemic and an economic crisis, take it upon himself to attack Critical Race Theory? Perhaps Donald Trump appreciated the power of this groundbreaking intellectual movement to change the world.

In recent years, Critical Race Theory has vaulted out of the academy and into courtrooms, newsrooms, and onto the streets. And no wonder: as intersectionality theorist Kimberl Crenshaw recently told Time magazine, It's an approach to grappling with a history of white supremacy that rejects the belief that what's in the past is in the past, and that the laws and systems that grow from that past are detached from it. The panicked denunciations from the right notwithstanding, CRT has changed the way millions of people interpret our troubled world.

Edited by its principal founders and leading theoreticians, Critical Race Theory was the first book to gather the movement's most important essays. This groundbreaking book includes contributions from scholars including Derrick Bell, Kimberl Crenshaw, Patricia Williams, Dorothy Roberts, Lani Guinier, Duncan Kennedy, and many others. It is essential reading in an age of acute racial injustice.

   So much brilliance in this book
From Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and John Paul Stevens to leading academics, this is a stunning collection of essays and writings from leading legal scholars. There is so much genius in this book and it ultimately explained so much and changed the way I think, Raymond said. It challenged me to question everything, including the questions, and expanded my ability to consider the most important issues we're grappling with today, he said.

   Subversion!
I am just wondering about people who made the negative comments, Sosa said. It's just that people are posting comments, it's just that you have people out there who wrote them. Or, they are working to subvert the work of critical race theory. 0 1 2 3171 This is either they are working to subvert the work of critical race theory or they are completely ignorant to the topic. We have people today who seek to change the truth because it doesn't fit their world, Raymond said.

   Uncitable
For serious scholarly work, this is an extremely rare find. The book is an edited work from previously published works.

   I want to keep it in my library for continuous study.
I have only read and discussed one of the many works by Dr. Goin. Thanks for the critical analysis, Robert. McBride. It takes me a minute to fully absorb and digest these discussions, even if I'm not a lawyer or even a philosophical scholar. I welcome the mental exercise I'm getting in being able to effectively address systemic racism which enables me to develop and discuss ideas to put Death 2 Racism into practice, he said.

   Hatred in book form
You can't teach that everything is racist, you show your own racism.

   Absolutely worth your time to read every single page
One of the most intellectually and challenging books I've ever read. I'm so glad I bought it and introduced myself to the movement, Blair said.
