Race Work fills a much needed void on the topic of civil rights in the American West. Whitaker cannot discuss every aspect of civil rights and race relations in Arizona during the late twentieth century, but his book is an excellent place to start. Dr. Whitaker has written a very readable and insightful book on this topic. Arizona has been overlooked for its trailblazing in the areas of school desegregation, and integration of housing and public facilities. This book is a tribute to Dr. Lincoln Ragsdale, and his wife Eleanor.

Mark One or More tells the little-known story of the struggle to include a multiracial category on the U.S. census, and the profound changes it wrought in the American political landscape. The movement to add a multiracial category to the 2000 U.S. Census provoked unprecedented debates about race. The effort made for strange bedfellows. Republicans like House Speaker Newt Gingrich and affirmative action opponent Ward Connerly took up the multiracial cause. Civil rights leaders opposed the movement on the premise that it had the potential to dilute the census count of traditional minority groups. The activists themselves―a loose confederation of organizations, many led by the white mothers of interracial children―wanted recognition. What they got was the transformation of racial politics in America. Mark One or More is the compelling account of how this small movement sparked a big change, and a moving call to reassess the meaning of racial identity in American life. Kim M. Williams is Associate Professor of Public Policy in Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and an expert in racial and ethnic politics and political movements.

Williams is one of the very few authors who actually TRIES to present a reasonably accurate history of the Multiracial Movement and the controversy of the "multiracial census category." However, that is not saying much since most of the academic "scholarship" about the multiracial movement is propaganda by black-identified academics. The movement is far more than the multiracial category. It is also a critique of every "racial" aspect of society. I would recommend works by former "Interracial Voice" authors:Beyond Race: The Bhagavad-gita in Black and WhiteThe Bhagavad-Gita in Black and White: From Mulatto Pride to Krishna ConsciousnessA Brief History of Social Identity: From Kinship to Multirace"Passing" for Who You Really Are: Essays in Support of Multiracial WhitenessLegal History of the Color Line: The Rise And Triumph of the One-drop Rule
