Reviews

"David Roediger has emerged as the leading analyst, critic and interpreter of the role of 'whiteness' in US history and culture. His carefully researched and historically grounded writing shows us that white racism has been a central force in US history, and a key component of Euro-American identity, not just an aberration in an otherwise color-blind society."--George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego
