Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice by Paul Kivel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'Uprooting Racism' has sold over 25,000 copies since its first printing. Substantially revised and expanded, this new edition has more tools to help white people understand and stand-up to racism. The book explores the manifestations of racism in politics, work, community, and family life. It moves beyond the definition and unlearning of racism to address the many areas of privilege for white people and suggests ways for individuals and groups to challenge the structures of racism. The book's welcoming style helps readers to look at how we learn racism, what effects it has on our lives, its costs and benefits to white people, and what we can do about it. In addition to updating existing chapters, the new edition explores how entrenched racism has been revealed in the new economy, the 2000 electoral debacle, rising anti-Arab prejudice, and health care policy. Special features include exercises, questions, and suggestions to engage, challenge assumptions, and motivate the reader towards social action. Includes an index and an updated bibliography.
