Pressestimmen"In fine accounts of the 17th-century Virginia colony, post-Revolutionary class and racial formation, Civil-Rights-era affirmative action debates, and the languages of whiteness, Steve Martinot offers a clear and ultimately clarifying work of scholarly synthesis. The Rule of Racialization tracks the structures of feeling and thinking--illogical, unconscious, baffling, and vestigial though they may be--that remain the driving forces of racialization and racism today." --Eric Lott, University of Virginia, author of Love and Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class "This book deserves to be consulted not just by students of race and ethnicity, but also by those interested in the failures of American socialism and ore concrete issues of affirmative action." --Ethnic and Racial Studies "[This book] makes an indispensable contribution to understanding the origins of racism in the United States, and [it] offers a useful framework to clarify the interconnection between economic and racial domination." --Contemporary Sociology
