"The second edition of New Perspectives on Racial Identity is as groundbreaking as the first. A combination of continuing and new authors offer a diverse array of perspectives on cutting edge theories and models related to racial identity development. By both honoring foundational theories and models and providing new and innovative thinking, the editors provide readers with a contemporary and sophisticated treatment of racial identity development."
-Susan R. Jones,The Ohio State University
"Takes a fresh look at racial identity development through the lens of intersectionality. In so doing this text furthers our understanding of the complicated and simultaneous experience of race as mutually constituted with other social identities. The authors are to be applauded for their willingness to interrogate and critique their own prior theoretical frameworks in order to explore new ground in this new edition. The result is a book that significantly advances the field of racial identity development and the theoretical and pedagogical practices that rely on it to help us better understand racial identity in all its richness and variability."
