Race and Ethnicity: Across Time, Space and Discipline available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Brill Academic Publishers, Inc.
The gauntlet thrown down before the American social scientists who contribute was to contemplate, evaluate, and analyze issues regarding race and ethnicity from radically different perspectives than those found in conventional studies. Across the disciplines of classics, anthropology, demography, linguistics, and law, they explore such topics as how to talk nasty about Blacks without sounding racist, the Black radical traditions in the South, and deciphering the Du Boisian concept of race and nation in The Conservation of Races.
