Racism and Anti-Racism in World Perspective

Edited by:


September 1995 | 331 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"This is must reading for all serious students of race and ethnic relations." --Choice Americans who study racism and the movements to counteract racism tend to look only at the U.S. situation in their attempts to understand the two phenomena. However, focusing only on the familiar and the national makes it very difficult to see how racism in the United States has been defined by our culture and history--and how it can be changed. For these reasons, Racism and Antiracism in World Perspective, edited by Benjamin P. Bowser, is a unique and valuable resource for students and scholars of race relations. The book's contributors come from a wide range of backgrounds, including anthropology, classics, sociology, political science, communication, and history. They examine racism and antiracism through the historical and cultural lenses of different world settings, including Europe, South America, Africa, North America, and the Caribbean. This progressive approach changes and expands the framework through which we understand the genesis and dynamics of racism and antiracism. Students and practitioners in the fields of race and ethnic relations, sociology, anthropology, cross-cultural studies, political science, policy studies, and comparative studies will find Racism and Antiracism in World Perspective to be an invaluable resource on international racism.
