This book offers an accessible discussion of both foundational and novel concepts in the study of race and ethnicity. Each account will help readers become familiar with how long standing and contemporary arguments within race and ethnicity studies contribute to our understanding of social and political life more broadly. Providing an excellent starting point with which to understand the contemporary relevance of these concepts, Nasar Meer offers an up-to-date and engaging consideration of everyday examples from around the world.
The scope of selection truly demonstrates the profound intersections of racial issues with everyday phenomena and the general ubiquity of racial politics... this book successfully outlines the dynamics of the field and provides an excellent account of key concepts of essential topics of 'race' and ethnicity. Either as an engaging introduction to the discipline or a succinct reference to extend knowledge, the book is likely to appeal to a readership from within and beyond sociology; to undergraduates and researchers alike.
