White Privilege, Second Edition: Essential Readings on the Other Side of Racism

White Privilege, Second Edition: Essential Readings on the Other Side of Racism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

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, deliberately or inadvertently, from racial bias.

 

White Privilege, Second Edition, the revision to the ground-breaking anthology from Paula Rothenberg, continues her efforts from the first edition. Two new essays contribute to the discussion of the nature and history of white power. The concluding section again 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.

Book News Annotation:

This anthology of 16 essays and articles seeks to make whiteness visible, to analyze the nature of white privilege, and to offer suggestions for using that privilege to combat racism. An interdisciplinary collection intended to be used in a number of different courses, it covers the power of invisibility, the power of the past, the power of privilege, and the power of resistance. Each section ends with questions for thinking, writing, and discussion. No date is cited for the first edition.
