What People are Saying About This

Stephen Steinberg - Professor of Urban Studies at Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City

"The civil rights movement, culminating in the passage of landmark civil rights legislation in 1964 and 1965, set into motion a literal revolution of ideas. The result was a tremendous outpouring of research and writing that transformed how we think about race and racism. This is why the Encyclopedia of Racism in the United States is such a timely contribution. For scholars and students alike, it provides a one-stop reference to the vast canon of race scholarship. More than a compendium of knowledge, it also reflects the theoretical developments and critical thinking that are the hallmarks of race scholarship during the post-Civil Rights Era."
