Overview

White Privilege / Edition 4

Paula S. Rothenberg has collected the classic core writings on white privilege and created a highly accessible, interdisciplinary resource meant to encourage deep discussions about race and unearned privilege in today's world and to initiate new thinking. Instead of focusing exclusively on the human cost of racism, this volume encourages us to explore the ways in which some people or groups actually benefit, deliberately or inadvertently, from institutionalized racism. The new third edition of White Privilege once again challenges readers to explore ideas for using the power and the concept of white privilege to help combat racism in their own lives, and includes key essays and articles by Peggy McIntosh, Richard Dyer, bell hooks, Robert Jensen, Allan G. Johnson, and others. Three additional essays add new levels of complexity to our understanding of the paradoxical nature of white privilege and the politics and economics that lie behind the social construction of whiteness, making White Privilege, Third Edition, an even better choice for educators.
