"... this is a useful and wide-ranging book that contributes to various aspects of the discussion of race. There is no other anthology like this... It is path-breaking in its demonstration that existentialism can be applied, historicized, concretized, and above all, that philosophy of existence is alive and well with a future as well as a past." -- Teaching Philosophy
"Lewis Gordon has edited an impressive anthology within a specialized area of philosophy ... [T]his is a great resource." -- Catholic Library World
