Overview

After Multiculturalism: The Politics of Race and the Dialectics of Liberty by John F. Welsh

After Multiculturalism: The Politics of Race and the Dialectics of Liberty provides a unique critique of multiculturalist thought in social theory and public policy from an individualist perspective. Contemporary discourse on race and racism in the United States is dominated by collectivist social theories that are founded on the idea that the only meaningful challenges to racism are those that foster collective social identities and seek to influence and direct the use of state power in the interest of particular racial and ethnic groups.

After Multiculturalism challenges the notion that collectivist and statist ideologies "own" racism as an educational and public policy issue.
