Stamped from the Beginning

Editorial Reviews

Review

"We often describe a wonderful book as 'mind-blowing' or 'life-changing' but I've found this rarely to actually be the case. I found both descriptions accurate for Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning... I will never look at racial discrimination again after reading this marvellous, ambitious, and clear-sighted book."
George Saunders, Financial Times, Best Books of 2017

"An engrossing and relentless intellectual history of prejudice in America.... The greatest service Kendi [provides] is the ruthless prosecution of American ideas about race for their tensions, contradiction and unintended consequences."
Washington Post

"A deep (and often disturbing) chronicling of how anti-black thinking has entrenched itself in the fabric of American society."
The Atlantic

"A staggering intellectual history of racism in America that is both rigorous and ...readable."
New Republic

"An intricate look at the history of race in the U.S., arguing that many well-meaning American progressives inadvertently operate on belief systems tinged with a racist heritage."
TIME

"Ambitious, well-researched and worth the time of anyone who wants to understand racism."
Seattle Times

"Kendi upends many commonly held beliefs about how racism works, exploring the ideas and thinkers behind our most intractable social and cultural problem."
Boston Globe

"An altogether remarkable thesis on history, but, in ways that are both moving and immediately painful, it also reverberates with the post-election autopsy we're all conducting right now... Stamped from the Beginning is a riveting (and often rivetingly written) work, well deserving of the National Book Award."―The Stranger

"The National Book Awards show the way toward the America we want, not the one we're getting."
New York Magazine

"Kendi has done something that's damn near impossible: write a book about racism that breaks new ground, while being written in a way that's accessible to the nonacademic. If you've ever been interested in how racist ideas spread throughout the United States, this is the book to read."
The Root
