About this book


Provides an accessible account of the social construction of racialized groups. Using both primary (in-depth interviews) and secondary data, four nations are examined: the UK, US, South Africa and Jamaica. Little attention has traditionally been given to theorizing multiracial identity in the context of white supremacist thought and practice.
