Harlemworld by John L. Jackson
Book DescriptionHarlem is one of the most famous neighbourhoods in the world - an historic symbol of both black cultural achievement and of the rigid boundaries separating the rich from the poor. But as this book shows, Harlem is far more culturally and economically diverse than its caricature suggests: through extensive fieldwork and interviews, John L. Jackson reveals a variety of social networks and class stratifications, and explores how African Americans interpret and perform different class identities in their everyday behaviour.

Thin Description, Hardback (November 2013)
African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem are often dismissed as a fringe cult. In this title, the author questions what "fringe" means when cultural practices of every stripe circulate freely on the Internet. It reveals how race, religion, and ethnographic representation must be understood anew in the 21st century lest we re-enact past errors.
Racial Paranoia, Paperback (February 2010)
An important examination of the new reality of race in American culture
Real Black, Paperback (November 2005)» View all books by John L. Jackson
Authenticity is considered the best way to distinguish the real from the phony, the genuine from the fake. The author proposes a new model for thinking about these issues - racial sincerity. This book offers a kaleidoscope of subjects and stories that directly and indirectly address how race is negotiated in today's world.
