After Multiculturalism: The Discourse on Race and the Dialectics of Liberty provides an individualistic critique of multiculturalist thought in social theory and public policy through a survey of the discourses on race by major individualist theorists. The ideas of Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard, Benjamin Tucker, Lysander Spooner, Max Stirner and contemporary libertarian scholars on race and racism are discussed to lay the foundation for the individualist critique of racism and multiculturalism.
John F. Welsh recently retired from his position as professor of Higher Education at the University of Louisville.
