Race and Ethnicity Titles from Routledge

Routledge produces many books on Race and Ethnicity. The following are a few books we have published in this area.

The Creolization Reader
Studies in Mixed Identities and Cultures
Robin Cohen and Paola Toninato
The Creolization Reader illuminates old creole societies and emerging cultures and identities in many parts of the world. Areas covered include Latin America, the South Atlantic/Indian oceans, the Caribbean, West and East Africa, the Pacific and the US. The book is truly inter-disciplinary and provides a timely, reader-friendly and informative overview of creolization.

Theories of Race and Racism: A Reader
Second Edition
Les Back and John Solomos
This reader provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview, bringing together the core ideas of authors who have helped to shape the study of race and racism and allowing readers to gain a feel for the changing terms of theoretical debate over time.

Ethnicity and Everyday Life
Christian Karner
Mixing theories of the everyday with a range of case studies, this book explains the 'character' of ethnicity, from being a political tool of exclusion, to a source of meaning and solidarity, and the relationship between culture, power and identity.

Encyclopedia of Race and Ethnic Studies
Ellis Cashmore
Although unafraid to engage with cutting-edge theory, the Encyclopedia is uncluttered by jargon and has been written in a lucid, 'facts-fronted' style to offer an accessible introduction to race and ethnic studies. The Encyclopedia is also fully cross-referenced and thoroughly indexed with most entries followed by annotated up-to-date suggestions for further reading to guide the user to the key sources. It is destined to become an essential resource for scholars and students of race and ethnic studies, as well as a handy reference for journalists and others working in the field.

Racist America
2nd Edition
Joe Feagin
This second edition of Joe Feagin’s Racist America is extensively revised and thoroughly updated, with a special eye toward racism issues cropping up constantly in the Barack Obama era.

Yes We Can?
Adia Harvey Wingfield and Joe Feagin
For readers and scholars who are interested in a sociologically-grounded assessment of the historic presidential campaign of 2008, this book provides such an analysis.

The White Racial Frame
Joe Feagin
This book examines how and why this white racial frame emerged in North America, how and why it has evolved socially over time, which racial groups are framed within it, how it has operated in the past and in the present for both white Americans and Americans of color, and how the latter have long responded with strategies of resistance that include enduring counter-frames.
