Praise

“A pithy little book … Remind[s] us that whiteness was built over centuries on a foundation of deceit and confusion and disguised political imperatives.”—Kelefa Sanneh, The New Yorker

“Starred Review. This rousing, thought-provoking history illuminates the enveloping 400-year-old history of race in America, and the issues [Roediger] raises are as relevant as ever.”—Publishers Weekly

“Scholars and activists will be able to rely upon this book for much needed historical perspective. Based heavily on an acute reading and insightful interpretation of a vast array of the secondary literature, this book is a worthy addition to Roediger’s formidable oeuvre.”—Journal of African American History

How Race Survived US History synthesizes a vast secondary literature … into a simple yet elegant analysis.”—Kornel Chang, Journal of American History
