What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"An excellent starting place for the national discussion about race we so desperately need."

-The Washington Post Book World,

"A novel in which two 'intellectuals of color'—the narrator, a middle-aged law professor, and his protege, Rodrigo Crenshaw—sit down and hash out the issues of our time. . . Intellectually exuberant"

-Los Angeles Times,

"A probing, thoughtful explication of the unexamined myths and assumptions that condition so many current U.S. public policy debates."


"Richard Delgado is a triple pioneer. He was the first to question free speech ideology; he and a few others invented Critical Race Theory, and he is both a theorist and an exemplar of the importance of story-telling to the workings of the law. This volume brings all of Delgado's strengths together in a stunning performance."

-Stanley Fish,author of There's No Such Thing as Free Speech; and It's a Good Thing, Too
