"[This book's] structure and content address comprehensively what I perceive to be the core content and pedagogical issues related to teaching about race and racism. It provides future human service providers with an understanding of the broad issues as well as some of the subtleties that I think the topic requires."
"This book is long overdue! It has all of the elements that are crucial for all individuals and organizations of this US/American society of understanding about the legacy and ongoing effects of racism. It includes exercises on personal self-reflection which is a crucial skill for people to learn, enhance, or hone. It is an active partner for anyone invested in assuming the challenge of engaging in anti-racism training, practice, and advocacy."
"[This book presents] a comprehensive look at racism in all its complexity and its many components and dynamics within our society and the helping professions."
"[This] is an excellent book for social workers and other helping professions--[it] gives enough theory and includes practice applications."
