A new generation of progressive intellectuals is transforming the ways we understand law, race and racial power. Questioning the old assumptions of both left and right on traditional civil rights reform, critical race theorists have presented new paradigms for understanding racial justice and new ways of viewing the links between race, gender, sexuality and class. The founders of the critical race movement have collaborated to edit this collection of important writings on the subject. Included in the essays are ""Whiteness as Property"" by Cheryl Harris, ""Race Consciousness"" by Garry Peller and ""Race, Reform and Retrenchment"" by Kimberle Crenshaw. The collection provides an overview of the principal themes of the movement, and includes an introduction by the editors offering a clear and accessible presentation of the main tenets of critical race theory.
