"This anthology provides a remarkable synthesis of race theorizing across the humanities and the social sciences – and yet also manages to be both historical and vitally contemporary. Indeed, by incorporating the self-conscious reflections of current thinkers, it often has the quality of a living and breathing text." Troy Duster, New York University
Race Critical Theories brings together many of the key contributors to critical theorizing about race and racism over the past twenty years. Each previously published text is accompanied by a fresh statement - in most cases written by the authors themselves - regarding the political context, implications and effects of the original contribution.
