    The content deserves four stars but since reading this book was a little like wading knee deep through a swamp I have demoted it to three starsThe information was great and I like the main idea of using a race conscious lens through which to analyze and then transform social political and legal structures and power distribution The breakdown of the different dimensions of power was great and offers a very useful framework to use
