Book Description

Originally published in 1970, Race and Racialism aims to bring race discussions into the mainstream of sociological discussion through scrutinizing concepts that defines theoretical issues. The book also locates race-relation situations in the context of the wider social structure and historical developments. Contributions raise the question of the abuse of biological and sociological theories in justifying social attitudes and policies and address various principles of social stratification that bear on the study of race relations. The book also looks at the how no special social categories are required to explain the structure and dynamics of race relations, and how the concept of plural society represents a significant theoretical development.
