"This volume ranges widely and creatively across time and space not only to investigate the history of racism, but also to interrogate its connections with related but distinct forms of oppression and subjugation. In almost every instance, the essays here reach a very high level - much higher than is typical for volumes of this kind." * Christopher Leslie Brown, Columbia University
