Hover over image to zoom
This book collects David Roediger's essays and counts the cost of whiteness in the past and present of the US. It finds those costs insupportable. At a time when prevailing liberal wisdom argues for the downplaying of race in the hope of building coalitions dedicated to economic reform, Roediger wants to open the debates on the privileges and miseries associated with being white. He closely examines the way in which white identies have historically prepared white Americans to accept the oppression of others, the emptiness of their won lives and the impossibility of change. Roediger explores the record of dissent from white identity, especially in the cultural realm, and encourages the search for effective political challenges to whiteness.
