A Global View of Race and Racism is the only text currently on the market that explores race and racism from a global perspective. With a clear and direct writing style, author Judy Root Aulette places an emphasis on sociological concepts as an organizing factor. Featuring nine short chapters focused on a broad range of nations around the world, this brief text examines central concepts and issues in racial/ethnic studies including apartheid, assimilation, colonialism, multi-ethnicity, caste, ethnonationalism, white frames, genocide, migration, and affirmative action. Each chapter discusses the ways in which racist structures and practices have been or are being challenged. Chapters also include critical thinking questions and highlighted key concepts and terms, which are summarized in a glossary at the end of the book.
