Reviews

"A particularly poignant censure is aimed at universities' theatrically professed diversity and inclusion efforts, which Patel contends do not actually interrupt settler colonialism and indeed exploit the labor of people of color . . . Thought-provoking interrogation for academics and reformers."
-Booklist

"In her essential new book, Dr. Leigh Patel examines how to disrupt systemic inequality on our campuses. Hint: it isn't checkbox 'diversity' programs and empty land acknowledgments but a real reckoning with the settler colonialism on which our universities were built and continue to capitalize."
-Ms. Magazine

"Challenging two centuries of US colonialist higher education, Leigh Patel provides an analysis of and a road map for decolonizing the settler-colonial university."
-Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States

"Today, most American universities have adopted obligatory land acknowledgments, recognizing that their massive billion-dollar campuses are on stolen land. And yet, inside the classroom, the administrative halls, the financial arrangements, and in the relations between universities and their neighbors, the legacy of settler colonialism persists, unremarked and unheeded. Until now. Leigh Patel delivers a powerful, penetrating analysis of the settler-colonial roots of the modern university and the consequences for higher education and our society at large. The lesson is clear: we can't 'reform' the university; it must be decolonized through critical study and struggle. This book is the essential guide."
-Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination

"Leigh Patel's writing is consistently bold, concise, timely, and filled with nuances. . . . Her moving writing is backed by historical context that brings theory to light."
-Bettina L. Love, author of We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom
