    Situating the study of race and ethnicity within its historical and intellectual context, this much needed guide exposes students to the broad diversity of scholarship within the field. It provides a clear and succinct explanation of more than 70 key terms, their conceptual evolution over time, and the differing ways in which the concepts are deployed or remain pertinent in current debates. Concepts covered include:

    • apartheid
    • colonialism
    • constructivism
    • critical race theory
    • eugenics
    • hybridity
    • Islamophobia
    • new/modern racism
    • reparations
    • transnationalism.

    Fully cross-referenced and with suggestions for further reading, Race and Ethnicity: The Key Concepts is an ideal resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of race, ethnicity, and nationalism. It will also be of great interest for those studying sociology, anthropology, politics, and cultural studies.
