Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Studies of racism often focus on its devastating effects on the victims of prejudice. But no discussion of race is complete without exploring the other side--the ways in which some people or groups actually benefit (deliberating or inadvertently) from racial bias.

White Privilege, the ground-breaking new anthology from Paula Rothenberg, seeks first to make whiteness visible. Subsequent essays discuss the nature and history of white power. The concluding section challenges readers to explore ideas for using the power and the concept of white privilege to help combat racism in their own lives.

Brief, inexpensive, and easily integrated with other texts, this interdisciplinary collection of commonsense, non-rhetorical readings lets educators incorporate discussions of whiteness and white privilege into a variety of disciplines, including sociology, English composition, psychology, social work, women's studies, political science, and American studies.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index.
