Just a note to let folks know that I will have two new books out in the next several months.
First, a revised (and I mean totally revised and remixed) version of White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, will be released in late August, from Soft Skull/Counterpoint. Even if you read one of the previous two versions of this book, trust me, you need to read this one. This time, the text is presented in a much more straightforward memoir voice, and includes dozens of stories that did not appear in the previous editions. Seriously, pre-order a copy today!
And then, my newest book, Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority (City Lights) is scheduled to be released in January, but will very likely make it out before that. Dear White America examines white racial anxiety and backlash in the face of changing political, cultural, economic and demographic realities, and how that backlash (and the public policy agenda that grows from it) threatens the future of American society, and any hope we have for maintaining a productive and democratic society in decades to come. You can pre-order this one too!
