Charles W. Mills is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center.
"...this is an essential reading for those concerned with the demographic composition of political science and philosophy as well as those wondering why this should be considered a concern." -- Contemporary Political Theory "Black Rights/White Wrongs, Mills's latest book, is that long-awaited result: his most thorough account yet of why and how liberal political theory has gone wrong. He returns to his criticism that liberal theory has mainly been attentive to and representative of the sociohistorical demands of white people (men in particular), but he also argues for a refreshed liberalism that retains its core political commitments while offering a fuller reckoning with the racial hierarchies and inequalities of America's past and present."- Christopher Lebron, The Nation
