Editorial Reviews


"[This book] challenges assertions that discrimination against minority children isn't provable, shouldn't be discussed, or can't be fixed."--Education Week

"Because of Race . . . explores how everyday interactions produce racial disparities in schools. . . . Pollock argues that Americans have entered a 'new civil rights era,' . . . [and] ends her book with a passionate call for the pursuit of everyday justice."--Joe Soss, Perspectives on Politics

"A groundbreaking book which blows the cover off the country's continued shameful color-coded patterns when it comes to access to quality education."--Kam Williams, Philadelphia Sunday Sun

"Because of Race without question extends our understanding of the continued struggle for equitable schooling opportunities in the post-civil rights era. It raises important questions and data that everyone should read, especially those interested in making the nation and its public schools a safe haven of justice and democracy for all."--Christopher M. Span, Journal of American Ethnic History

From the Back Cover

"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
