Race, ethnicity and nationalism are at the heart of many of the major social and political issues in the present global environment. New antagonisms have emerged which require a rethinking of traditional theoretical and empirical perspectives. The books in this series are based on special issues of Ethnic and Racial Studies, the leading journal for the analysis of these issues throughout the world. Expert authors and editors present interdisciplinary research and theoretical analysis, drawing on sociology, social policy, anthropology, political science, economics, geography, international relations, history, social psychology and cultural studies.
