Race and Racisms: A Critical Approach, Third Edition, engages students in significant-and timely-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 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, Third Edition, incorporates an intersectional perspective, discussing the intersections of racism, patriarchy, and capitalism.
Race and Racisms is exactly what I had been looking for in a textbook. It is extraordinarily well-organized, well-written, and rigorously inclusive. * Marisela Martinez-Cola, lUtah State University *This is the leading textbook on critical perspectives on race and racism in sociology. It is far ahead of competitors that focus on race/ethnic groups. * Juan Salinas, lSonoma State University *This is a book for teachers who are interested in preparing their students to develop the skills and tools to not only use identity and understand key historical moments, theoretical frameworks, and approaches to race and ethnicity, but to also enter the world and talk about race. * Edelina Burciaga, lUC-Denver *
