Reviews
"The Heart of Whiteness is brilliant; it has the capacity to transform what we thought we knew about both race and sexuality in the twentieth century. Furthermore, in Julian Carter's hands 'normal' takes on a meaning that is so specific, clear, and historically on-target that nobody will be able to see twentieth-century normality in the same way after reading her book."--Gail Bederman, author of Manliness and Civilization: A Cultural History of Gender and Race in the United States, 1880-1917
"In this smart and provocative book, Julian B. Carter argues that the concept of 'the normal' in America results from an interlocking though disavowed set of relationships between whiteness and heterosexuality. . . . Carter's source materials are well chosen and consistently interesting. . . . This is a brilliant book, certain to invigorate our understanding of whiteness and heterosexuality as they presided at the birth of American normality."--Mason Stokes "American Studies"
