"White by Law's thoughtful analysis of the prerequisite cases offers support for the fundamental critical race theory tenet that race is a social construct reinforced by law. Haney Lopez has blazed a trail for those exploring the legal and social constructions of race in the United States."-Berkeley Women's Law Journal
”Henry Lopez has provided a piece of scholarship worthy of brining out for a curtain call on its 10th anniversary.”-
"Whiteness pays. As White by Law shows, immigrants recognized the value of whiteness and sometimes petitioned the courts to be recognized as white. Haney Lopez argues for the centrality of law in constructing race."-Voice Literary Supplement
