For well over a decade, critical race theory - the school of thought that holds that race lies at the very nexus of American life - has roiled the legal academy. In recent years, however, the fundamental principles of the movement have influenced other academic disciplines, from sociology and politics to ethnic studies and history. This text is a primer on critical race theory outlining its basic parameters and tenets.

Review quote

"Unlike other theorists, these people mean to change the world, not merely to 'ascertain how society organizes itself along racial lines and hierarchies, but to transform it for the better.' This book has served as my introduction to a field I wish I had started to cultivate and harvest much earlier."-"Bloomsbury Review"
