Critical Multicultural Perspectives on Whiteness Reader aims to help us rethink "race," racism, and whiteness as narratives with deep roots in the past that contribute to the current social order, and function to reproduce the social hierarchy in which we live. The reader includes several brilliant iconic essays that address the social construction of whiteness and critical resistance, as well as excellent new critical perspectives. It is a compilation that offers new and intermediate readers in critical whiteness theory a valuable and diverse overview of the subject. It also serves as a refresher to those who have themselves contributed to this field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Day by day, the fog is clearing and our nation is awaking to the reality that so-called `reforms' are destroying public education. `Constructing Critical Consciousness' brings clarity not only to persisting inequities in education, but perhaps more significantly, to the misleading stories about education that mask those inequities and the better alternatives awaiting us. Virginia Lea and colleagues provide an essential resource for reframing the debate that is both alarming and hopeful, insightful and compelling - everyone should read and use this book today." (Kevin Kumashiro, author of `Bad Teacher! How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture'; and Dean of the University of San Francisco School of Education, San Francisco, California)
"Through an outstanding compilation of essays, this book strikes at the very heart of hierarchies of power, which so brutally preserve the violence of inequalities in schools and society. Boldly shattering hegemonic myths of legitimacy, Virginia Lea offers narratives and research that powerfully counter old allegiances to dominant structures of schooling, as well as possibilities for emancipatory transformation. By so doing, she calls forth a humanizing political project of education, anchored firmly in creative constructions of critical consciousness and the evolution of democratic life." (Antonia Darder, Leavey Endowed Chair of Ethics and Moral Leadership, Loyola Marymount University, California)
