Description

Race and Society is a thoughtful and critically engaging exploration of some of the key issues around race and racialisation, which have arisen in what is considered to be a highly diverse and complex society. With a progressive approach emphasising the social construction of race issues within a post-racial era, moving away from essentialist and polarized explanations of raced interaction, Tina Patel: Introduces the main concepts and key theories, including their post-developments. Focuses on the processes and impact of racial categorisation in contemporary society. Highlights the intersectional and multifaceted nature of race and related conceptualizations. Illustrates how race has morphed into newer forms of categorizations. Race and Society is packed with topical examples and international case studies to engage students, along with chapter summaries, study questions and further reading. It's a highly readable and thought-provoking guide to the study of race and racialisation processes for students of sociology, criminology and related disciplines.

About Author

Dr Tina G. Patel completed her first degree in Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University. Having been awarded funding from a fully competitive scheme, she then spent 31/2 years at the University of Sheffield studying for the qualification of PhD, in a study looking at race, identity and child adoption policy. She was then appointed as a research fellow for a project funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, at Nottingham Trent University, looking at school exclusion and successful youth transitions within African-Caribbean communities. In September 2004, Tina returned to Liverpool John Moores University to take up a post as a lecturer in Criminology and Sociology. Tina joined the University of Salford in September 2008, as a lecturer in Criminology (with a specialism in violence). Her research and teaching interests relate to `race', exclusion, police and violent behaviour. Here she carried out research into the policing of racist violence in Northern Ireland; vehicle crime in deprived neighbourhoods; the foster care and identity development of refugee status children; and, ethnic profiling in the North-west of England within the 'war on terror' context. Tina is currently undertaking research into victims' perceptions of racially motivated hate crimes. Tina's areas of expertise are: Race and ethnicity; Identity (racial); Racism and exclusion; The family (black families and transracial adoption); Black and minority ethnic communities; Marginalised groups and communities; School exclusion and black African Caribbean youth; Institutional racism; Police, policing and challenges (especially in Northern Ireland and Greater Manchester); and, Racist violence / harassment.
