Book presents US history from a working class revolutionary and non white perspective Missing the kind of academic rigor expected of contemporary political philosophy the book is absent large numbers of supporting citations and is riddled with illogical statements ignored in favour of subjective polemics that are not critically analysed or supported As a non American looking to understand race relations in America I am absolutely confused at the sheer number of ahistorical assertions that seem to have no grounding in statistics or facts If you re trying to understand racism in contemporary Western society or are interested in the material factors of oppression this is probably the last book you should read Of particular note is the author s endless assertions that material reality such as class doesn t really exist and seems completely incompatible with developing the kind of anti racist working class politics that used to be very common within the left The author s key premise is completely at odds with any kind of liberatory politics and completely incompatible with a leftist marxist or even a liberal or libertarian view which appears to make it somewhat irrelevant in today s political climate

    To echo the words of Kersplebedeb the book is groundbreaking Magnificently simple and yet so earth shattering for anyone raised on a heavy diet of bourgeois historicism Truly rewriting the history of settler colonialism in a way which highlights the utter ugliness of it all

    Definitely a necessary read for those who want to understand the mythology of the white proletariat how it conceptualizes itself as a broad based workers movement when the reality and history of white labor organizing tells a completely different storyIt makes for a fascinating read but by the same token there
