The Psychoanalysis of Race / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Columbia University Press
Are divisive political forces the source of the historical persistence of racism and its alarming recurrence in contemporary society? Or are there also subtler, more intractable reasons for racism's irrational power and historical persistence? This collection of essays takes the study of racism into a radically new direction––that of unconscious fantasies and identities––offering perspectives from a variety of leading figures in many fields.

What People are Saying About This
In this deservedly big--and, happily, excellent--book, a range of voices, both celebrated and new, spells out with precision the resources psychoanalysis puts at our disposal and the ways it sometimes fails us with regard to questions of race. Individually and en bloc, these rich and subtle essays will orient the debate for a long time to come. -- (Joan Copjec, author of Read My Desire: Lacan against the Historicists)
