Review

"A moving and engaged book that is evidently the product of several years of intense research worn effortlessly." —Eduardo Mendieta, SUNY Stony Brook

(Eduardo Mendieta, SUNY Stony Brook)

"A significant contribution to our understandings of the concept of race, with particular emphasis on its intersections with concepts of sexuality, and more largely, abnormality." —Shannon Winnubst, The Ohio State University

(Shannon Winnubst, The Ohio State University)

McWhorter (philosophy and women's studies, Univ. of Richmond) has written an important book on the study of race and sexuality studies. The use of historical context and the theoretical examination of terminology are significant. The author clarifies the issues that arise when parties contend that sexual preference discrimination is different from discrimination based on race. The historical discussion of race and the issues of racial discrimination followed by cultural events such as the Civil Rights Movement establish a much-needed context for the study of discrimination issues. By using definition, theory, and discussion of 'normality' and 'abnormality' as put forth by Foucault, McWhorter is able to highlight issues of sexual discrimination within the Anglo-American world. This text offers many insights into the topic of homophobia and discrimination in the US. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level philosophy and gender studies, as well as a reference for professors. --ChoiceL. L. Lovern, Valdosta State University, September 2009

"[This book] is a powerful fact-based philosophical epic of oppression in Anglo-America along its two central axes—racism and sexuality." —Cynthia Willett, Emory University, Journal of Speculative Philosophy, Vol. 23.4 2009

(Cynthia Willett, Emory University Journal of Speculative Philosophy 2009-01-00)

"McWhorter's expanded conception of racism is a path-breaking and far-reaching contribution to critical race theory, disability theory, queer theory, and Foucault scholarship that complicates some of the most accepted understandings of these fields and shows how these understandings have at different times, in unexpected ways, enhanced relations of subjection, domination, and control." —Hypatia
