Natalie P. Byfield, PhD. candidate in Philosophy and Sociology at Fordham University, reviews Encyclopedia of Racism in the United States. The book is the first of its kind, an encyclopedia whose sole focus is racism in the United States. The history is presents spans topics from the early days of the U.S., such as 1790 Naturalization Act, Eugenics, Nat Turner’s slave revolt, to events of the present day. It is an excellent resource for academics as well as laypeople.
