Description - Racialised Boundaries by Floya Anthias

Racialized Boundaries develops an overall perspective for analysing the constructs of race and racism. The authors maintain that the concept of race has to be located within the wider category of the ethnos'. Ethnicity is understood primarily as a political rather than a cultural phenomenon. The authors explore the ways in which race and racism serve as a structuring principle for national processes, both in terms of defining the boundaries of the nation and the constituents of national identity. They examine the ways in which the phenomenon of race and racism interrelate with other social divisions, such as class and gender and the way blackness' can play a part in the racialization process. Finally the authors consider some of the ideologies that have influenced the Race Relations Industry' as well as some of the racial struggles around it. In particular they look at the ideology' of the community' which underlies, in different ways, both the multi-culturalist' and anti-racist' schools of thought, and link it to a critical examination of identity politics'.
