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.

Great book on CRT. I really liked the language & break down of CRT research & even if you don't agree with 100% of it, this book does an excellent job of introducing you to basic concepts of CRT & authors that have contributed to the subject.

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.

A must-have primer for anyone interested in critical race theory. This book is especially useful for teaching the foundations of this theory in the classroom. Clear, succinct, pivotal work in the field.
