If you're new to CRT or need a refresher, I highly recommend this book! It's easy to read. It provides just enough philosophy on CRT from different perspectives without overwhelming a newbie. Delgado touches on all the major CRT theories and theorists. It's a relatively easy and quick read.

Excellent work. Contrary to the negative comments, this book offers a framework for understanding how and why racism pervades society despite our beat efforts to educate prejudice out of the public.

Reading this book gave me a foundation CRT, its scholars and its activists. The next reading for me needs to be in the area of CRT in education.

Format: Paperback
Critical Race Theory emerged from the historical and sociolgical study of protest movements in the 1960s.From Plantation to Ghetto At the time, I focused on what American Indians were doing, and I was disappointed that Critical Race Theory offers limited material on the Native American Rights Fund.Native American Sovereignty (Native Americans and the Law) However, the book more than makes up for that lack with up-dates of what is happening in feminist movements as well as Asian, African, and Latino activist organizations which are at the same time intellectually anaylzing social and political movements.
The sophistication and legal backgrounds of the scholars contribuing to this book could have made the work tedious and ponderous, but it reads so well that I would recommend it for all ages beginning at the high school level, especially where experienced teachers can add insights and answer questions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Critical Race Theory: An Introduction, as the title suggests, is intended to be a primer. Critical Race Theory (CRT), "...considers many of the same issues that conventional civil rights and ethnic studies discourses take up, but places them in a broader perspective that includes economics, history, context, group- and self-interest, and even feelings and the unconscious." (p.3).

Authors Delgado and Stefancic provide the basic foundation behind the the theory as well as explaining some of the principles such as: interest convergence, structural determinism, and [legal] storytelling, to name a few. Also, in the interest of fair-mindedness, one of the later chapters is dedicated to those with opposing viewpoints and expounds on what that opposition entails.

At the conclusion of each chapter, `classroom exercises' , `questions and comments', and `suggested readings' are provided for further clarity and analysis. I personally thought the exercises and questions were constructive and thought-provoking; a noble attempt to provide practical application of theory via real-world scenarios.
