Description

This provocative volume will influence the way people think of race and racialization. It provides a thorough examination of these complex and intriguing subjects with historical, comparative, and international contributions.
Edited as a theoretically strong, cohesive whole, this book unites a remarkable ensemble of academic thinkers and writers from a diversity of backgrounds. Themes of ethnocentrism, cultural genocide, conquest and colonization, disease and pandemics, slavery, and the social construction of racism run throughout.

Editorial Reviews

"This reader's uniting of anthropological roots of racial thinking to colonialism, prejudice, and institutional racism will appeal to many. This book will prove to be a convenient and useful teaching aid."— “Sean Hier, University of Victoria


"Before the publication of this book, there was no focused text on racism that challenged the established orthodoxy of the liberal multiculturalist agenda of assimilation and cultural genocide of Indigenous peoples."— “Gerald Taiaiake Alfred, Indigenous Peoples Research Chair, University of Victoria


"An outstanding collection of readings. Excellent introduction linking colonialism to concepts of race and prejudice. This establishes issues of race from the beginning as rooted in relations of power. Selected readings on the aboriginal, African, and Latino experiences provide detailed discussion of colonial and economic roots of racialized experiences. Strong critical readings cover issues of multiculturalism, popular culture, justice, politics, and diasporic communities."— “Sylvia Hale, Chair, Department of Sociology, St. Thomas University
