Overview

In this collection of essays, the authors examine how racial considerations have affected the way social science is conducted; how issues are framed, and data is analyzed. With an assemblage of leading scholars, White Logic, White Methods explores the possibilities and necessary dethroning of current social research practices, and demands a complete overhaul of current methods, towards multicultural and pluralist approach to what we know, think, and question.

Editorial Reviews

Joe Feagin
In White Logic, White Methods courageous researchers expose the hidden racist dimensions of mainstream social science, which has long suffered from concealed white supremacy. Tables turn as white scientists become subjects of probing analysis. With critical assessments of past and present research, these original articles offer a path to a renewed, emancipatory social science oriented more to building truly just societies.
Gloria Ladson-Billings
White Logic, White Methods evokes the same urgency, excitement, and challenge to orthodoxy as Ladner's classic, The Death of White Sociology. Instead of asking the conventional question of whether the glass is half full or half empty, they dare to ask whose glass is this, who chose it, and who says we have to settle for it?
Deputy Editor, American Sociological Review - France Winddance Twine
This path-breaking volume should be required reading for every graduate student and scholar engaged in research on race and ethnicity. The contributors carefully dissect and uncover the myriad ways that white supremacy is supported by conventional practices employed by social scientists to collect, analyze, and frame data on race and racial inequalities. By offering a scathing critique of the ways that social science research remains complicit in white supremacy this volume will change the ways that sociologists conceptualize and carry out studies in the sociology of race and racism.
