Pressestimmen"Contrary to the glib forecasts of many academic and journalistic pundits, race is not going away; rather it is energetically reorganizing itself and working through new global divisions. Globalization and Race examines this new context by inquiring into the various ways that emerging global processes are fundamentally reshaping the way people of African descent experience and theorize racial identity." David Scott, author of Conscripts of Modernity: The Tragedy of Colonial Enlightenment " Globalization and Race will be an invaluable resource for courses on diaspora, anthropology, and cultural studies. The keen attention to subjectivities created through discourses and practices that figure race, gender, class, national, and continental differences in global contexts makes this volume distinctive." Paulla A. Ebron, author of Performing Africa
