"Goldberg offers a compelling, historically grounded and powerful set of analytic tools to understand the pernicious synergy on which racisms and modern states have thrived. The Racial State offers that rare form of engaged scholarship speaks to the theoretical and the everyday, that joins analytic innovation and nuance, political commitment, and historical breadth." (Ann Laura Stoler, University of Michigan--Ann Arbor) "The Racial State is a worthy contribution, following Omi and Winanta s theory, to our understanding of modern racial formation. Commanding the canon of political philosophy and legal theory, Goldberg provides us with a thorough account of how racial distinction, exclusion, management and terror have been historically the reason and practice of the modern state."
