Abstract

In White Philanthropy: Carnegie Corporation’s An American Dilemma and the Making of a White World Order, Maribel Morey explores the story behind the production of the influential study on US race relations in 1944 by the American philanthropic foundation. This is an engaging and nuanced empirical account of how asymmetries in knowledge production, perpetuated by elites, have worked to uphold a white world order, writes Juvaria Jafri. White Philanthropy: Carnegie Corporation’s An American Dilemma and the Making of a White World Order. Maribel Morey. University of North Carolina Press. 2021.
