    This collection, edited by one of my law professors whom I respect and admire, is both comprehensive and incomplete.

A number of the essays seem to be greatly truncated law review articles. Then again, this can be a good thing. It gives the reader a taste of an array of topics related to Critical Race Feminism, and to the black (and in some cases Latina or Asian) woman's experience. The tone of most essays is scholarly, and a number deal with cases or specific elements of the law, but others have a more personal tone. Black woman law professors are particularly well-represented, and it is indeed a shame to read the stories of their experiences with racism, sexism, or a combination in such recent history. This is definitely an eye-opener for a white feminist, and I would presume for a male as well. Don't forget to take a look at the bibliography after reading.
