Racial Justice in the Age of Obama
Roy L. Brooks

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]


"Roy Brooks provides savvy and succinct analyses of contending civil rights theories in the Obama era. Comparing understandings of and solutions for U.S. structures of racism, Brooks fairly but provocatively dissects traditionalism, reformism, separatism, and critical race theory, to offer the best evaluative summary yet of contemporary civil rights thinking."--Joe R. Feagin, author of Systemic Racism: A Theory of Oppression

"Brooks captures all the nuances of the causes and effects of racial disparities in the United States. The book is neither too broad nor too narrow, and strikes a sensible, coherent balance that fills a void in race-related texts. Examining issues of diversity, it adds another exciting dimension to the discussion about the world that we live in and what we aspire to as a nation."--Robin Barnes, University of Connecticut School of Law

"This excellent book will command the attention of a significant legal audience as well as other intellectuals interested in the race question. Well-researched and well-written, it will revise how the debate on race is addressed."--Alex Johnson, University of Virginia School of Law
