Summary Described as vital, eye-opening, and powerful, White Privilege, Fourth Edition, remains essential reading for students and educators alike. Used in courses across disciplines and educational levels, this unique anthology expertly presents the significance and complexity of whiteness today and illuminates the nature of privilege and power in our society. Rothenberg's thoughtful four-part organization leads students through the ubiquity and corresponding invisibility of whiteness; the historical development of whiteness and its role in race relations throughout history; the real effects of privilege and its opposite, oppression; and finally, an exploration of how the system of privilege could be changed. The fourth edition continues to feature key articles and essays from such important scholars and writers as Peggy McIntosh, Richard Dyer, Beverly Tatum, bell hooks, Allan G. Johnson, and Tim Wise and includes new selections from Nell Irvin Painter, Robert Jensen, and Justin Podur.
