  • Was Blind, But Now I Seeby Barbara J. Flagg

    NYU Press 1997; US$ 30.00

    "Race" does not speak to most white people. Rather, whites tend to associate race with people of color and to equate whiteness with racelessness. As Barbara J. Flagg demonstrates in this important book, this "transparency" phenomenon--the invisibility of whiteness to white people-- profoundly affects the ways in whites make decisions: they rely... more...

  • Blacks in the Jewish Mindby Seth Forman

    NYU Press 1998; US$ 22.95

    Since the 1960s the relationship between Blacks and Jews has been a contentious one.

  • Spinsters and Lesbiansby Trisha Franzen

    NYU Press 1996; US$ 22.95

    Americans have long held fast to a rigid definition of womanhood, revolving around husband, home, and children.
