Overview

This pioneering volume applies critical whiteness studies in a variety of educational contexts in the United Kingdom. The author uses ethnographic, biographical and documentary research to show how whiteness ‘works’ in education. The book also considers policy issues, and discusses how critical whiteness studies might function in anti-racist practice, shows how ‘white supremacy’ continues to dominate educational discourse and practice and discusses how this can be resisted.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Preston is a serious academic. The book … is ambitious in scope (including new empirical data as well as wide ranging reviews of the contemporary theoretical literature) and written with a clear voice that does not flinch from critiquing some of the key figures in the field. … In the field of race and class inequities in UK education, this is one of the most important books of the decade. It deserves a wide readership … .” (David Gillborn, Studies in the Education of Adults, Vol. 41 (2), 2009)
