Mills argues for a new critical theory that develops the insights of the black radical political tradition. While challenging conventional interpretations of key Marxist concepts and claims, the author contends that Marxism has been 'white' insofar as it has failed to recognize the centrality of race and white supremacy to the making of the modern world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Taking us from impeccably argued, textually based, and highly original reconsiderations of the key notions of 'ideology,' 'materialism,' and morality in Marxian thought, through a psychologically profound analysis of how decent people could have become Stalinists, and on into questions about race, racism, and social contract, Charles Mills enhances his already considerable reputation with the publication of this volume. His elegant writing style and rapier intellect make it a joy to read despite the grim reality of white supremacy that has by now come to serve as the leitmotif of his philosophical reflections." -- William McBride, Department of Philosophy, Purdue University
"Mills provides a brilliant treatment of the debate about race and class in contemporary Marxism. His insightful account of the shift by leftist scholars towards a race-centered social theory makes this book a requirement for anyone seeking a better understanding of the Marxist grounding of current research in Critical Race Theory and Whiteness Studies." -- Tommy Lott, Professor of Philosophy, University of Missouri
From Class to Race makes a significant contribution to the field of critical theory in that it compels us to rethink our assumptions about Marxist terminology. Through a series of meticulously constructed arguments, Mills centralizes and re-evaluates the role of white supremacy in contemporary constructions of race and class in America. Academic and non-academic readers interested in race, class, or Marx will enjoy this unique book. -- Gertrude Gonzalez de Allen, assistant professor of philosophy, Spelman College
