Overview

How is race mobilized politically? How is racism experienced? How have racial meanings and experiences of racism changed—or failed to change—over time and in different places?

Written by a renowned scholar of critical race theory, The Threat of Race explores how the concept of race has been historically produced and how it continues to be articulated, if often denied, in today’s world. Charting race in all its exclusionary, humiliating, and violent expressions, Threat offers a powerful new analytic for understanding this most insidious subject position.

From Western and Northern Europe, South Africa and Latin America, and from Israel and Palestine to the United States, The Threat of Race provides a new taxonomy for understanding the power and pervasiveness of race in the 21st century.
