Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Through an insightful and provocative analysis, Cole offers a bold interrogation into the ideological underpinnings of CRT, as well as a clear and useful alternative based on recent developments in Marxist theory. Critical Race Theory and Education is sure to spark renewed transatlantic debates regarding 'race' not only within education, but also other fields of study, where a 21st Century understanding of racism is imperative to the transformation of material conditions of inequality and the destructive impact of global capital." - Antonia Darder and Rodolfo D. Torres, authors of After Race: Racism after Multiculturalism

"Any movement would be fortunate to have the meticulous but wide-rangingcriticism that Cole offers.This volume is a welcome contribution that comes at an especially good time, as critical race theory jumps the Atlantic and expands into fields outside law, such as education." - Richard Delgado, University Professor of Law, Seattle University; author of Critical Race Theory: An Introduction and The Rodrigo Chronicles

"Stories make up the substance of theory; they elucidate theory in ways that are compelling and comprehensible. Cole proves to be an effective storyteller. Cole offeres a direct interrogation of critical ract theory (CRT) from a Marxist perspective and makes a signficant contribution to the dialogue concerning race, class, and education." - P.S. Kelly, Choice

"Cole's book Critical Race Theory and Education: A Marxist Response is a valuable contribution to the ongoing debates regarding racism. . . . One of the main features of the book is that it critically discusses theoretical approaches regarding race and racism while at the same time giving examples from real life, thus enabling the reader to draw links between theory and practice; these examples relate to classroom practice and pedagogy as well as state policies. . . . Cole's book is a very well articulated volume and addresses a wide audience, embracing university students, academics, and practitioners." - Maria Papapolydorou, Institute of Education, University of London
