Racism: A Very Short Introduction

But in reality, racism is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon that cannot be captured by such definitions. In our world today there are a variety of racisms at play, and it is necessary to distinguish between issues such as individual prejudice, and systemic racisms which entrench racialiazed inequalities over time. This Very Short Introduction explores the history of racial ideas and a wide range of racisms - biological, cultural, colour-blind, and structural - and illuminates issues that have been the subject of recent debates.

Racism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Introduction Bauman has long been regarded as an unconventional sociologist, though his work has tended to garner more praise than criticism, both inside and outside of the academy. Do they demonstrate a fundamental limitation or are his theories amenable to refinements, modifications and interventions which successfully incorporate the identified absences? Instead, for Rattansi, there are more serious consequences to these omissions. Rather, he suggests that empirically grounded sociology is ever more important in a post-truth age. As an example of good practice in terms of bringing together methodological rigour with an explicit ethical commitment to challenging marginalisation, Rattansi cites social geographer Danny Dorling. This neatly illustrates the interrelationship which exists between abstract theoretical and applied empirical work, and shows that there is room for different kinds of sociology to co-exist.
