Description - Race and Power by Gargi Bhattacharyya
Race and Power reviews cutting-edge debates around racial politics and the culture and economy of globalization in an accessible way for undergraduate students. Far from concluding that racism is over, the authors contend that the forces of globalisation inhabit older cultures of racial division in order to safeguard the economic interests of the privileged. Arguing that the unspoken culture of whiteness informs much that passes in the name of globalisation, the book suggests that we are witnessing a reformulation of economic relations around global racisms. Alongside these shifts in economic relations racialised identities evolve to encompass mixed heritages and mixed cultures both in personal identities and in lifestyle choices. The volume ends with an examination of the role of diasporic cultural forms in contemporary global consciousness.
