In this collection of essays, the authors examine how racial considerations have affected the way social science is conducted; how issues are framed, and data is analyzed. With an assemblage of leading scholars, White Logic, White Methods explores the possibilities and necessary dethroning of current social research practices, and demands a complete overhaul of current methods, towards multicultural and pluralist approach to what we know, think, and question.

This path-breaking volume should be required reading for every graduate student and scholar engaged in research on race and ethnicity. The contributors carefully dissect and uncover the myriad ways that white supremacy is supported by conventional practices employed by social scientists to collect, analyze, and frame data on race and racial inequalities.

White Logic, White Methods evokes the same urgency, excitement, and challenge to orthodoxy as Ladner's classic, The Death of White Sociology. Instead of asking the conventional question of whether the glass is half full or half empty, they dare to ask whose glass is this, who chose it, and who says we have to settle for it? - Gloria Ladson-Billings, Kellner Family Chair in Urban Education and professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, University o
