Description

This book features an acclaimed exploration of how the idea of race was created and recreated in American history. From the late seventeenth century to the civil-rights movement and the emergence of the American empire, David Roediger examines how race intersected all that was dynamic and progressive in US history, from democracy and economic development to migration and globalization and shows how race remains at the heart of American life in the twenty-first century.
