Race and Society is a thoughtful and critically engaging exploration of some of the key issues around race and racialisation, which have arisen in what is considered to be a highly diverse and complex society. With a progressive approach emphasising the social construction of race issues within a post-racial era, moving away from essentialist and polarized explanations of raced interaction, Tina Patel: - Introduces the main concepts and key theories, including their post-developments. - Focuses on the processes and impact of racial categorisation in contemporary society. - Highlights the intersectional and multifaceted nature of race and related conceptualizations. - Illustrates how race has morphed into newer forms of categorizations. - Is packed with topical examples and international case studies to engage students, along with chapter summaries, study questions and further reading. Race and Society is a highly readable and thought-provoking guide to the study of race and racialisation processes for students of sociology, criminology and related disciplines.
