"What does it mean to be white and American? White Folks moves beyond the dominant critical methodologies of examining 'whiteness, ' to conceptualize white people in a way that is unafraid to confront, head on, the violence at the core of white racial selves, but that also that illuminates conflicts and complexities there. The book focuses on the the authors' own experience of growing up in a small, rural community in northern Wisconsin, and the stories of people from that community, drawn from a series of in-depth interviews"--Provided by publisher.
