Praise for the 1st edition: "Haney Lpez performs a major service for anyone truly interested in understanding contemporary debates over racial and ethnic politics. . . . A sobering and crucial lesson for a society committed to equality and fairness." -Martha Minow, Harvard Law School "This book is remarkable for sheer information value, but draws its analytic power from the emphasis on whiteness to make sense of racial oppression. . . . Haney Lpez convincingly demonstrates that the US is ideologically white not by accident but by design." -<I>Choice</I> <I>White by Law</I> was published in 1996 to immense critical acclaim, and established Ian Haney Lpez as one of the most exciting and talented young minds in the legal academy. The first book to fully explore the social and specifically legal construction of race, <I>White by Law</I> inspired a generation of critical race theorists and others interested in the intersection of race and law in American society. Today, it is used and cited widely by not only legal scholars but many others interested in race, ethnicity, culture, politics, gender, and similar socially fabricated facets of American society. In the first edition of <I>White by Law</I>, Haney Lpez traced the reasoning employed by the courts in their efforts to justify the whiteness of some and the non-whiteness of others, and revealed the criteria that were used, often arbitrarily, to determine whiteness, and thus citizenship: skin color, facial features, national origin, language, culture, ancestry, scientific opinion, and, most importantly, popular opinion. Ten years later, Haney Lpez revisits the legal construction of race, and argues that current race law has spawned a troubling racial ideology that perpetuates inequality under a new guise: colorblind white dominance. In a new, original essay written specifically for the 10th anniversary edition, he explores this racial paradigm and explains how it contributes to a system of white racial privilege socially and legally defended by restrictive definitions of what counts as race and as racism, and what doesn't, in the eyes of the law. The book also includes a new preface, in which Haney Lpez considers how his own personal experiences with white racial privilege helped engender <I>White by Law</I>.<br />
