Front Cover
Ashley W. Doane, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva
Routledge, Jan 11, 2013 - Social Science - 344 pages
What does it mean to be white? This remains the question at large in the continued effort to examine how white racial identity is constructed and how systems of white privilege operate in everyday life. White Out brings together the original work of leading scholars across the disciplines of sociology, philosophy, history, and anthropology to give readers an important and cutting-edge study of "whiteness".
