This brief introduction to The Construction of Whiteness begins with discussion of the evolution of critical whiteness studies over the last quarter of a century. Emphasis is laid on the sub-discipline’s dramatic rise and then its productive transformation towards making smaller but perhaps more decisive contributions to a range of scholarly endeavors. The balance of the introduction considers the need for a new collection of writings in the area, one reflecting these trends, and surveys the sections of the book as well as the individual contributions to it.
