Unsettling Settler Societies: Articulations of Gender, Race, Ethnicity & Class Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

`Settler societies' are those in which Europeans have settled and become politically dominant over indigenous people, and where a heterogenous society has developed in class, ethnic and racial terms. They offer a unique prism for understanding the complex relations of gender, race, ethnicity and class in contemporary societies. </p> <p></p> <p>Unsettling Settler Societies brings together a distinguished cast of contributors to explore these relations in both material and discursive terms. They look at the relation between indigenous and settler/immigrant populations, focusing in particular on women's conditions and politics. The book examines how the process of development of settler societies, and the positions of indigenous and migrant peoples within them, reflects the place of these societies (New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Algeria and Israel) within a global economy.

Synopsis:

What relationship exists between indigenous and settler/immigrant populations? This fascinating volume answers this question by examining societies where Europeans have settled and become politically dominant over indigenous people-and where a heterogeneous society has developed in class, ethnic, and racial terms. A distinguished cast of contributors explores the racial and ethnic cleavages of such societies and invites comparison with a variety of contemporary societies that have involved encounters between native and migrant groups. In all the case studies discussed (New Zealand, Australia, Zimbabwe, Algeria, Israel, the United States, Mexico, Peru, Canada, and South Africa), special attention is paid to the role of gender. For scholars and students in the fields of gender studies, race and ethnic studies, sociology, and political theory, this book is a must.
