Overview


In 2001, Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic published their definitive Critical Race Theory, a compact introduction to the field that explained, in straightforward language, the origins, principal themes, leading voices, and new directions of this important movement in legal thought. Since then, critical race theory has gone on to influence numerous other fields of scholarship, and the Delgado and Stefancic primer has remained an indispensible guide for students and teachers.

Delgado and Stefancic have revised the book to include material on key issues such as colorblind jurisprudence, Latino-Critical scholarship, immigration, and the rollback of affirmative action. This second edition introduces readers to important new voices in fields outside of law, including education and psychology, and offers greatly expanded issues for discussion, updated reading lists, and an extensive glossary of terms.

Booknews
This small paperback introduces critical race theory to the undergraduate student (study questions conclude each chapter). The authors introduce the concept; cover the main themes of the theory<-->material determinism, revisionist interpretations of history, the critique of liberalism, and structural determinism; describe storytelling, counterstorytelling, and the narrative turn; and consider intersectionality and anti-essentialism. Delgado teaches law at the U. of Colorado in Boulder where Stefancic is a research associate in law and author. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
