Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
An outstanding, thoroughly accessible account of race issues across the planet, showing impeccable scholarship and an international grasp of contemporary debates. This book is certain to have a significant impact on generations of scholars and students grappling with these questions now and in the future.
Ian Law, CERS (Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies), University of Leeds

This gracefully written volume corrects the narrow views of race and racism that have become increasingly dominant in recent years. Stretching across the globe and historical eras, this is a masterful survey, which manages to inform without getting the reader lost in details by developing a supple yet coherent perspective with deep roots in social theory.
Richard Alba, CUNY
