"Anthony Cook's powerful book is a pioneering work that connects legal theory, religious thought, American Studies, and race in a fascinating manner. How refreshing it is to have such a sophisticated legal scholar put forward a progressive religiospiritual vision of racial and economic justice!" -- Cornel West, Harvard University
"The Least of These provides a religious and spiritual framework for the progressive vision of America and reminds us of the essential place of compassion and spirituality in creating a more just and egalitarian world." -- William H. Gray, III, President, United Negro College Fund "Critical race theory wants to bring race to the very center of the analysis of most situations," said Professor Anthony Cook.."Its assumption is that race has affected our perception of reality and our understanding of the world-in almost every way."
