Race and Ethnicity: Culture, Identity and Representation by Stephen Spencer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Race and Ethnicity adopts a global perspective to explore the historical, social and political processes which produce ethnic relations and identities. Steve Spencer reconsiders the problematic and elusive terms 'race' and 'ethnicity' through an accessible and engaging range of global case studies and illustrations. Key debates and controversies are explored through an array of interviews and imagery from world cultures including: Guyana, Mexico, Malaysia, Fiji as well as Australia, the UK and USA. Policies on multiculturalism, diasporas, asylum seekers, mixed race relationships and refugees are explained and up-to-date studies of racism and racial conflict from different areas of the world presented. The forms of representation discussed include: photographs, cartoons, advertising, newspapers, magazines and TV, as well as literary and poetic imagery, anecdotes, music and fashion. Drawing on sociology, cultural studies and anthropology - this text provides analyses of the major issues involved in the creation of ethnic identities.
