Theories of Race and Racism (2ND 09 Edition)by Les Back
Synopses & Reviews
Theories of Race and Racism: A Reader is an important and innovative collection that brings together extracts from the work of scholars, both established and up and coming, who have helped to shape the study of race and racism as an historical and contemporary phenomenon.
This second edition incorporates new contributions and editorial material and allows readers to explore the changing terms of debates about the nature of race and racism in contemporary societies. All six parts are organized around the contributions made by theorists whose work has been influential in shaping theoretical debates. The various contributions have been chosen to reflect different theoretical perspectives and to help readers gain a feel for the changing terms of theoretical debate over time. As well as covering the main concerns of past and recent theoretical debates it provides a glimpse of relatively new areas of interest that are likely to attract more attention in years to come.
Book News Annotation:
Back (sociology, U. of London, UK) and Solomos (sociology, City U., London, UK) have conceived of this reader as a systematic overview of the study of race and racism as field of scholarship and research. They present a mixture of 42 classical and contemporary texts selected with the intention to introduce the student and general reader to the key areas and range of disciplinary, theoretic, historic, and geographical perspectives involved in the field. The readings are presented in sections devoted to the origins of race and racism, social theorizing about race and race relations, anti-semitism as racism, linkages between colonialism and constructions of race, feminist perspectives on racism, and changing boundaries and spaces in cotemporary debates about race and racism.
