Editorial Reviews

Review

This second edition of Institutional Racism is a most timely publication for those who seek to understand the structural and institutional impedances to attaining a society of race and ethnic pluralism. This work critically examines and exposes the institutional dynamics that drive structured racism: It highlights a critical analytic case study of the Katrina horror and offers from here to where with welfare. This important work is a must for educators, students, community persons, and public policy framers who strive for justice in a diverse society... (Douglas Glasgow, former dean of Howard University School of Social Work, former vice president of the Research Division of the National Urban Lea)

I am involved in a coalition to overcome institutional racism and I found this book very helpful. It had solid background information/history and a sensitive analysis of the problems confronting all people in the U.S. in the struggle to overcome racism. It gave an excellent basis for doing the work to overcome racism and included enough detail and examples to be both helpful and inspiring. Any white person interested in realizing what is really going on for people of color would benefit from reading it, as well as all people working to overcome institutional racism and struggling with how to proceed will appreciate it.
