Understanding Racism systematically examines the theories and theorists that have contributed the most to our contemporary understanding of racism in its various forms-making it easier for you to understand the multiple dynamics of how racism operates.

In every chapter, activist and award-winning sociologist Hephzibah Strmic-Pawl describes the emergence of a theory and the problem it addresses; discusses the scholars who are most closely associated with the theory; and explores the strengths and limitations of the theory.

From foundational theories such as Prejudice and White Privilege to contemporary theories such as Color-Blind Racism, Understanding Racism is the first text to present thirteen approaches for explaining racism in one book.

The book's systematic organization and pedagogical features will help you think theoretically about race and racism at different levels of analysis, as well as reflect and discuss how to challenge racism.
