I’m not quite sure what it means to “rack” or “racking”. And how backless cannot rack.

I was looking at torsion shelf building plans as well as thick cuts of wood (2” or so) for the shelves. I think i’m leaning more towards the thick cut lumber, possibly something exotic like zebrawood. As far as attaching the shelves to the side walls of the bookcase would it be suitable to use T braces on the backside and maybe a peg or dowel recessed into the shelf and side walll with glue?
