Kovel probes the deep psychological and historical embedments of racism in Western civilization.

Abstract:  A comprehensive Marxist-psychoanalytic study of white racism which integrates historical, social and psychodynamic perspectives to explore Kovel's definition that 'far from being the simple delusion of a bigoted and ignorant minority, racism is a set of beliefs whose structure arises from the deepest levels of our lives - from the fabric of assumptions we make about the world, ourselves and others and from the patterns of fundamental social activities.
