Description

Updated to include the Black Lives Matter movement, the presidency of Barack Obama, the rise of hate speech on the Internet, and more.



Since the publication of the first edition of Critical Race Theory in 2001, the United States has lived through two economic downturns, an outbreak of terrorism, and the onset of an epidemic of hate directed against immigrants, especially undocumented Latinos and Middle Eastern people. On a more hopeful note, the country elected and re-elected its first black president and has witnessed the impressive advance of gay rights.


As a field, critical race theory has taken note of all these developments, and this primer does so as well. It not only covers a range of emerging new topics and events, it also addresses the rise of a fierce wave of criticism from right-wing websites, think tanks, and foundations, some of which insist that America is now colorblind and has little use for racial analysis and study.


Critical Race Theory is essential for understanding developments in this burgeoning field, which has spread to other disciplines and countries. The new edition also covers the ways in which other societies and disciplines adapt its teachings and, for readers wanting to advance a progressive race agenda, includes new questions for discussion, aimed at outlining practical steps to achieve this objective.

Review quote

"Without doubt this is the best introduction available to Critical Race Theory. The authors are inspirational writers who have shaped CRT from its inception to its present state as a global interdisciplinary movement of scholars and activists. CRT provides a radical and challenging perspective that reveals how racism shapes the everyday reality of the world; from law courts and prisons, to the economy, schools, media and health care." -David Gillborn,Professor of Critical Race Studies, University of Birmingham, UK "Comprehensive and insightful, Critical Race Theory, Third Edition is a must read for those wondering 'why the fuss?' about racial justice and a must read for those who think they know. An essential tool for today's world."-Stephanie M. Wildman,John A. and Elizabeth H. Sutro Professor of Law, Santa Clara University
