Reviews

"Cameron McCarthy's The Uses of Culture: Education and the Limits of Ethnic Affiliation is a rigorously argued, brilliantly conceived and cogently written book about the politics of identity and identity of politics in contemporary education. McCarthy's book not only examines the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality in theory, and in the classroom, but he provides as well incisive readings of popular texts against the backdrop of contentious cultural debates. The Uses of Culture is tour de force of educational and cultural studies!" -- Michael Eric Dyson, Visiting Distinguished Professor of African-American Studies, Columbia University, and author of Race Rules: Navigating the Color Line
