ABOUT THE BOOK
 From Class to Race: Essays in White Marxism and Black Radicalism
SYNOPSIS
On his path towards authorship of The Racial Contract (1997), Mills (philosophy, U. of Illinois)
traced a trajectory from "fairly orthodox" Marxism to his social contract understanding of race in
the United States. He here presents nine essays as a reconstruction of that journey of critical
theory. He approaches questions of historical realism, the engagement of black radicals with
"white" Marxism, and white supremacy as a central component of the present social order.
