Theories of Race and Racism

A Reader

«

‘In the new edition of this vital resource, we are afforded a comprehensive review and reflection of the continued global role and influence of race and racism. As with earlier editions, Theories of Race and Racism's 3rd Edition will be an indispensable text for instructors and students alike in classrooms across the world’.

Marcus Anthony Hunter, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

‘This is an impressive collection of essays, ranging from the classics to the contemporary cutting edge. The extensively updated third edition of this essential collection again shows the editors’ commitment to providing the scholarly community with a historically rooted, in-depth overview of critical writings on race and racism. The result is a key volume on the theorization of race and racism, sophisticated and inventive in its conceptualization, and deeply attuned to the genealogies that we build on in our work on race and racism. Perhaps even more importantly, it is forward-looking, providing readers not only with an overview of historical developments, but also with incisive readings that focus on contemporary concerns in the field and suggest directions for new work. The lucid introduction lays out the stakes of theorizing race and racism in the current moment, while the readings gathered in the volume present multiple theoretical starting points rather than an argument that ‘one theory fits all’. As a result, the volume provides readers with a critical in-depth starting point for thinking about, conducting research on, and working towards social justice regarding race and racism’.

Anna Korteweg, Professor of Sociology, University of Toronto, Canada

‘In the field of race and racism, heated conflicts and controversies have recently often replaced respectful theoretical discussions and debates. This third edition of Theories and Race and Racism offers an incredible collection of papers, which could serve as a reference to restore the much needed open and informed theoretical discussions and debates about the very complicated issues related to race and racism today. A must read for open minded students, scholars, and activists’

Marco Martiniello, Director of CEDEM (Center for Ethnic and Migration Studies), University of Liège, Belgium

‘Theories of Race and Racism brings forth the best in classic and contemporary thinking on the concept of race and the phenomenon of racism in modern life. This third edition captures the evolution in social thought on these matters, including contributions that address the centrality of feminism as a focal point in modern thinking about them, and considerations of spatial dynamics as they affect modern conditions of race and racism. This volume continues to serve as essential reading for students, scholars, and others who are curious about why and how these two critical dimensions of life have endured’.

Alford A. Young Jr., Professor of Sociology, University of Michigan, USA
