Now in its second edition, Race and Racialization presents new scholarship focusing specifically on immigration and migration, policies of multiculturalism, whiteness, gender and race, and settler relations. Contributors explore the problem of institutional racism from historical, comparative, and international perspectives, providing readers with tools to recognize the forces that contribute to the social construction of racism and encouraging new ways of understanding racial thinking.
Offering a critical examination of the failures of integration and multiculturalism in modern society, this theoretically rich volume is an indispensable resource for courses centered on race studies or other forms of oppression.

"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."
