Review quote

Whiteness and Racialized Ethnic Groups in the United States is the logical follow up of Pinder's intellectual journey. Her scholarly style and lucid argumentation are fascinating. . . . Having taught Pinder in an upper level under-graduate Africana Studies class I can say that this book can be taught in undergraduate and graduate courses, including Africana Studies, Political Science, Multicultural and Gender Studies. -- Thelma M. Pinto, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Former President, African Literature Association Sherrow Pinder's book is both interesting and timely, speaking to the organicism of whiteness as extant and experienced in the twentieth century, while relating to its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century antecedents. Her thorough research and solid grounding in United States history makes a nice contribution to the body of relatively diverse literature on whiteness studies, ethnic studies, and race theory. -- Barbara Ballard, Marymount Manhattan College
