About the book: Weaponized Whiteness by Fran Shor interrogates the meanings and implications of white supremacy and, more specifically, white identity politics from historical and sociological perspectives. By analyzing the constructions and deconstructions of white identity politics throughout U.S. history and up through the present, these collected essays provide insight into the deep roots and resonances of white identity politics and the challenges that have emerged, in particular, since the 1960s.
Fran Shor taught for 40 years at Wayne State University, retiring in 2014 as an Emeritus Professor of History. He has published three books and hundreds of articles on U.S. socio-cultural history in scholarly and popular journals.
