Race, Nation, Class Ambiguous Identities, Etienne Balibar and Immanuel Wallerstein, 1991

Advertisements

Situating racial and ethnic relations within the social structures maintained by nationalist ideologies, class interests and veiled conflicts, Balibar and Wallerstein illustrate racism’s particularity as both symptom and tool in capitalism’s latest stage of development. Packed with clear-sighted historical analysis and productive debates, this book marks a major shift in Western Marxism towards a deeper understanding of social strife.
