"One of the most important books ever on the social construction of the notion that there is a 'white' race." -- Tikkun "[I]ntriguing and well researched. This is an important addition to the nascent academic field of whiteness studies, which examines the social construction of whiteness with particular attention to the American experience. It should be read by all historians and anyone with an interest in cultural studies." -- Library Journal "Compelling, energetic, [and] highly readable." -- Alan Nadel - Philadelphia Inquirer "An insightful and lively exposition from a distinguished scholar." -- Linda Gordon - The New York Times Book Review
