i have an early proof copy of this, and the subtitle is slightly different: "Overcoming White Supremacy and Racism".
This is a great book. Every white person should be required to read this, but then again, if we lived in a world where that was required then maybe they wouldn't need to read it. ha.
Anyway, I think anyone who wants to learn about the history of racism and "whiteness" and also get ideas for how to advance their own personal and social struggle against white supremacy would benefit from this book. It's clearly written and covers all the bases in a thorough and persuasive manner.
