"Multiracial Americans and Social Class is evidence that multiracial studies has emerged as a field that both draws from and enriches multiple disciplines. Kathleen Korgen has assembled a smart array of foundational and newer scholars who take on the complexity of race, multiraciality, and social class in fresh ways."
- Kristen Renn, Associate Professor of Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education, Michigan State University US
"Research on multiraciality has increased exponentially since the groundbreaking books by Paul Spickard (1989) and Maria Root (1992, 1996). Yet this analytically penetrating collection is the first systematic examination of social class in terms of the topic. It is an invaluable addition to the ever-growing literature on multiraciality and racial/class analyses more generally."
- G. Reginald Daniel, University of California, Santa Barbara US, and author of Race and Multiraciality in Brazil and the United States: Converging Paths?
