Because of Race:
How Americans Debate Harm and Opportunity in Our Schools
Mica Pollock

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Once again Mica Pollock demonstrates her amazing understanding of the relationship between race and education. If there is one book to read to make sense of the way race permeates the schooling experience, this is it."--Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"In this thoroughly researched book about civil rights and education today, Mica Pollock demonstrates that what she calls 'everyday justice' is systematically denied and disavowed. Pollock is deeply attentive to the dilemmas, successes, and failures of all her subjects: civil rights officials, educators, and parents who try to make civil rights law function effectively. Because of Race is the best study yet of structural racism in the twenty-first century."--Howard Winant, University of California, Santa Barbara

"This book impressively incorporates a range of sources from critical legal studies and the sociology of law. Impassioned and scholarly, Because of Race is a strong book about important policy terrain."--Mitchell L. Stevens, New York University
