The SAGE Handbook of Race and Ethnic Studies is one of the best handbooks outlining the latest thinking on race and ethnic studies published in recent years... The breadth of themes and the depth of discussion are ambitious, offering the reader an A-Z guide of contemporary thinking on race and ethnicity... a valuable resource for scholars and activists alike.
Why are racial and ethnic identities, along with racism and ethnic chauvinism, so tenacious in the contemporary world? Why do lines of racial and economic exclusion continue to converge? Do we have the appropriate analytical tools to make sense of the manner and purchase of race and ethnicity? This important handbook provides a clear, accessible and incisive survey of debate and research on such questions, at the heart of the burgeoning field of race and ethnicity studies.
Hill Collins and Solomos have composed a compelling volume that speaks to the central issues of race and ethnicity today. They include a vibrant mix of established and emerging voices addressing the principal and pressing contemporary conceptual and theoretical questions regarding race and ethnicity. These include the ways in which race, class, gender and the nation are taken up in the dominant disciplines of the humanities and social sciences, law and critical race theory, family, religions, education, the state, repression and resistance.
In the 21st century racism continues to be alive and kicking. This well written handbook, a landmark, situates a range of contemporary expressions of race, ethnicity, racism and resistance in a global context. Substantial chapters provide breadth, depth and clarity to questions that remain contested in spite of decennia of race critical research. Hill Collins and Solomos combine editorial excellence in producing a solid handbook with a concluding chapter mapping out the challenges for the 21st century.
