Essay Collection is Now Out – “Speaking Treason Fluently”

Just wanted to let folks know that my essay collection, Speaking Treason Fluently: Anti-Racist Reflections from an Angry White Male, has just been released by Soft Skull/Counterpoint. In it, you can find a little more than 40 of my essays on race, institutional racism and white privilege, from 2000 to 2008. Ranging from pieces on white denial to the costs and consequences of white privilege and inequality on folks of color and whites as well, the collection covers most every conceivable racial flashpoint and subject of the past decade. For those on racismreview who are familiar with my writing, and who have perhaps used it before (in classes, or with recalcitrant family members for that matter!), getting a copy of the book will allow you to have all the “best” pieces in one place. Much easier than tracking everything down on my ridiculously non-user-friendly website! Anyway, you can grab a copy at your local bookstore (they may have to order it), or easily get it by going to my home page, and clicking on the book cover, which will take you to the Amazon link.

Thanks in advance for your ongoing support of my work, and to many of you, for your example and mentorship as well over the years.


  1. I read every Tim Wise essay I can find, and use Whites Swim in Racial Preference in the White People Challenging Racism: Moving From Talk to Action adult ed workshop. I co-teach. Anyone who reads even half of these 20 essays will look at life in the U.S. through the lens of anti-racism – and hopefully take action.
