Studies of racism often focus on its devastating effects on the victims of prejudice. But no discussion of race is complete without exploring the other sidethe ways in which some people or groups actually benefit, deliberately or inadvertently, from racial bias. White Privilege, Second Edition,the revision to the ground-breaking anthology from Paula Rothenberg, continues her efforts from the first edition.Two new essayscontribute to the discussion of the nature and history of white power. The concluding section again challenges readers to explore ideas for using the power and the concept of white privilege to help combat racism in their own lives. Brief, inexpensive, and easily integrated with other texts, this interdisciplinary collection of commonsense, non-rhetorical readings lets educators incorporate discussions of whiteness and white privilege into a variety of disciplines, including sociology, English composition, psychology, social work, women's studies, political science, and American studies.
