Editorial Reviews

Review

"As of the publication of Critical Race Theory it will be unwise, if not impossible, to do any serious work on race without referencing this splendid collection."
—Toni Morrison

"A fundamental reference guide to any serious work on race."
Amsterdam News

"Critical Race Theory is a compilation of provocative writings that challenges us to consider the relationship between race, the legal system, and society at large."
—Senator Bill Bradley

Format: Paperback
An outstanding collection of law review articles that explore the role of the law in creating and maintaining the American racial hierarchy. In addition to describing the key tenets of Critical Race Theory, the articles in this book address several important social issues, including affirmative action, zoning, and policies related to pregnant women who use drugs. One of the best collections of its kind, this book is crucial reading for anyone who is interested in race, social justice, and/or legal theory!

This book is incredible. As a highschool student, I never really realized all of the barriers set up against people of color in the law. I coudldn't figure out why my black friends still didn't have the respect if laws are "neutral." Dorothy Roberts article in this book about the prosecution of drug-addicted pregnant women addresses many touchy issues and brings the problems with the law directly to light. And the introduction to this book clarifies CRT in a very helpful way. An excellent read.

I have had this reader for some time now- and have since had a chance to fully appreciate all that it offers. The title couldn't be more accurate- these are the key writings that shaped the Critical Race Theory (CRT) movement. This is a must have for any law student who is looking to explore the scholarship of persons of color who have largely been ignored or excluded in the legal discussions involving civil rights. It is also a great starter book for anyone interested in exploring CRT.
