Kovel's book is a mind-blower, a serious attempt to grapple with racism simultaneously on historical and psychological levels, incorporating a concise and readable history of the specific human relation called 'white racism' by a perceptive culling of many different sources. (Telos)

A brilliant book, admirably and provocatively written....Books on 'race' are legion, but they are seldom as original and interesting as Joel Kovel's book....very much worth reading for the many insights it provides into the depths of a profound human tragedy. (Ashley Montagu)

A singularly impressive and well written book. (The New York Times)
