Further Reading

An excellent set of resources, readings, and videos can be found at the White Awake site.

For a scholarly account accessible to everyone, see Nell Irvin Painter, The History of White People. There's also Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today by Jacqueline Battalora.

A popular place to start is Robert Jensen's The Heart of Whiteness.

Philosopher and scholar Linda Martin Alcoff discusses the difficulties in getting beyond whiteness in her  extensive scholarly article on "The Whiteness Question." Print source: Alcoff, Linda. "The Whiteness Question." Visible Identities, Race, Gender and the Self (2006): 205-224. She is also the author of the new book The Future of Whiteness.
