Race and Racisms: A Critical Approach engages students in significant questions related to racial dynamics in the U.S. and around the world. Written in accessible, straightforward language, the book discusses and critically analyzes cutting-edge scholarship in the field. Organized into topics and concepts rather than discrete racial groups, the text addresses:
* How and when the idea of race was created and developed * How structural racism has worked historically to reproduce inequality * How we have a society rampant with racial inequality, even though most people do not consider themselves to be racist * How race, class, and gender work together to create inequality and identities * How immigration policy in the United States has been racialized * How racial justice could be imagined and realized
Centrally focused on racial dynamics, Race and Racisms also incorporates an intersectional perspective, discussing the intersections of racism, patriarchy, and capitalism.
