Description: Contemporary Issues in the Sociology of Race and Ethnicity: A Critical Reader occupies, expands, and challenges the, issues raised by critical race theory. Fleshing out the theoretical pillars of Critical Anti-Racist Theory (CART) as its central organizing framework, this text responds to the central issue of race in terms of public and academic discourses, meta-narratives, and its implications for social policy. Drawing from popular culture, this edited collection features a variety of real-world analyses, from media bias to contentious Afrocentric school programs. This collection serves as a timely and accessible text for academic and wider audiences. In addition to outlining the philosophical underpinnings of CART, the text considers how this theory may inform current socio-political dynamics in a wide, globally-reaching range of areas. This book will be useful in undergraduate and graduate courses in anthropology, diaspora studies, eduction, ethnic studies, law, multicultural studies, politics, social work, and sociology.
