Overview

Race Critical Theories brings together many of the key contributors that have been critically theorized about race and racism from the past twenty years. The texts selected have transitionally made a difference to the scope and depth of our thinking. They are also crucial in comprehending the critical employment of race to political, legal and cultural ends. Each text is accompanied by a fresh statement regarding the political context of the original contribution, the personal motivations of the authors and the implications and effects of race critical scholarship. Most of these contextualizing reflections are written by the authors themselves. They thus provide an invaluable pedagogical tool for undergraduate and graduate students.
