This book uses the concept of territorial racismto describe the discriminatory acts and exclusions that have been informed by native/alien distinctions. It argues that while the concept intersects with several different histories of racial and racist discourse-including colorblind racial ideologies, nativism, anti-Asian racism and anti-Latino racism-it is a distinct ideological formation in its own right. It is broader in scope than these other types of racism, and articulates race and territory in a way that is qualitatively different from the racial-territorial commonsense of the colonial era. Reflecting in policy trends, racial discourse, and macro-structural transformations, this book operates across all of these levels-looking at global/local and micro/macro dynamics-to present a new theory of immigrant racialization.
