Critical Race Theory: An Introduction, Third Edition: Critical America, Book 20 (Unabridged)
Updated to include the Black Lives Matter movement, the presidency of Barack Obama, the rise of hate speech on the Internet, and more.
Since the publication of the first edition of Critical Race Theory in 2001, the United States has lived through two economic downturns, an outbreak of terrorism, and the onset of an epidemic of hate directed against immigrants, especially undocumented Latinos and Middle Eastern people. On a more hopeful note, the country elected and re-elected its first black president and has witnessed the impressive advance of gay rights.
As a field, critical race theory has taken note of all these developments, and this primer does so as well. It not only covers a range of emerging new topics and events, it also addresses the rise of a fierce wave of criticism from right-wing websites, think tanks, and foundations, some of which insist that America is now colorblind and has little use for racial analysis and study.
Critical Race Theory is essential for understanding developments in this burgeoning field, which has spread to other disciplines and countries. The new edition also covers the ways in which other societies and disciplines adapt its teachings and, for listeners wanting to advance a progressive race agenda, includes new questions for discussion, aimed at outlining practical steps to achieve this objective.
Critical Race Theory is wonderfully read by Karen Chilton, acclaimed narrator of The New Jim Crow.
Track numbers vs titled tracks
I had to peel back my five star rating to three stars because it’s difficult to find exactly what I’m looking for in the audiobook whenever I want to go back to find something I want to hear again. The use of track numbers are not very helpful. Titled tracks would defiantly be more helpful. If this problem is not addressed soon, I will further reduce my rating to just one and encourage others to do the same. People paid money for this audiobook and it’s just pure laziness to leave the work unfinished. It’s disrespectful to the people whom are supporting the publication of this audiobook. So, please fix it! Thanks!
While this book has some interesting information, the writing style is so unorganized and confusing that it’s barely listenable.
Just like Carl Marx’s views on politics have created horrible places like China and North Korea, this too will create poisoned minds. This should have never been published.
