"Globalization and Race will be an invaluable resource for courses on diaspora, anthropology, and cultural studies. The keen attention to subjectivities created through discourses and practices that figure race, gender, class, national, and continental differences in global contexts makes this volume distinctive."--Paulla A. Ebron, author of Performing Africa
"Globalization and Race is an invaluable resource for anyone in the humanities or the social sciences who wants to understand how the contemporary politics of race is being re-conceptualized. The essays cover a wide range of topics and provide new theoretical vocabularies not only for understanding the globalizing forces of capital, labor, and technologies, but for the new hierarchies of racial ordering which emerge in their wake. This will quickly become the standard work in the field."--Hazel V. Carby, author of Cultures in Babylon: Black Britain and African America
"An interesting and useful book that will undoubtedly appear on many reading lists, this volume is welcome for its explicit aim of paying close attention to global processes in the construction of race."--Peter Wade "Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "
"Contrary to the glib forecasts of many academic and journalistic pundits, race is not going away; rather it is energetically reorganizing itself and working through new global divisions. Globalization and Race examines this new context by inquiring into the various ways that emerging global processes are fundamentally reshaping the way people of African descent experience and theorize racial identity."--David Scott, author of Conscripts of Modernity: The Tragedy of Colonial Enlightenment
