Book review: “In his development of his own highly dialectical mode of analysis, [John F.] Welsh examines racism from a variety of vantage points and levels of generality; he sees reciprocally reinforcing interrelationships among racism, collectivism, cultural relativism, statism, tribalism, and determinism. He presents a theoretical perspective that expands ‘the dialectics of liberty.’ In rejecting racism as disease and multiculturalism as antidote, he argues that it is essential ‘to explore what individualism and libertarianism have to offer to those who are interested in reconstructing social life without racial and ethnic domination.’ Welsh surveys the various critiques of racism offered by such theorists as Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard, the individualist anarchists, and Max Stirner, among others, en route to defining a fundamentally radical dialectical-libertarian framework for interpretation, analysis, and praxis.” (08/10/08)
