From the Back Cover:

"Allan Johnson really understands how interlocking systems of oppression work and knows how to share his understanding in a way that will be immediately accessible to students at all levels. Privilege, Power, and Difference should serve as an invaluable tool for teaching about privilege and oppression."  Paula Rothenberg, author of Race, Class, and Gender

"In Privilege, Power, and Difference, Allan Johnson teaches us how to think critically about inequality and oppression without getting mired in guilt or despair. He gently but firmly removes the blinders that keep us from seeing our own privileges and how those privileges harm others. Then he shows us how to walk the talk and turn our beliefs in justice and equality into practice. This is a book that will change lives."  Michael Schwalbe, author of Unlocking the Iron Cage: The Men's Movement, Gender Politics, and American Culture.

"I adopted this very readable book and it has had a tremendous impact on my students.  Johnson explains the concept of privilege in ways that allow my students with privilege to hear and understand without getting defensive.  I recommend it highly for both college and high school students and the general adult population."  Jane Connor, SUNY
