The Politics of Race
Inspired by Anthony Marxâ€™s thesis that "States make Race," the authors show how race regimes worked in Australia, Canada, South Africa, and the United States. The main argument is that race is a defining characteristic of politics and has played, and continues to play, a central role in the political systems of present-day societies.
This is a book that inserts race as a core element in the political science paradigm, as it addresses the questions of why and how race became a central aspect of contemporary politics.
