Race relations in sociological theory by John Rex( Book )

40 editions published between 1970 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to develop sociological theory adequate to deal with the various uses to which racism has been put. How particular political orders apply "scientific" rationalizations, including race, to disguise their true origins in force, violence, and usurpation is demonstrated. Analysis of exploitative conditions starts with an objective situation of differentiation, inequality, and pluralism between groups, proceeds to the impulse to distinguish among groups, and then observes the rationalization of this discrimination in terms of some theory, frequently but not necessarily biological. The book provides a useful critique of prevalent theories of stratification, and concludes in a final theoretical chapter that there is a distant field of race relations studies. (Author/DM)

17 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last decade the study of multiculturalism has become an established field in political and social theory. This in-depth and engaging volume focuses on public policy and the dilemmas faced by the governments of increasingly diverse societies. Offering a theoretically and empirically rich collection of essays from some of the leading specialists in the field, it fills the gap between the social and political theory of multiculturalism and institutionally based national case studies. The book is distinctive in combining a robust theoretical introduction to recent developments in multiculturalism with a critical evaluation of contemporary public policy in a variety of countries in Europe, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Far East and South Africa. It incorporates a strong comparative dimension both within and across the case studies, with a regional focus enabling comparisons of regional, national and international experience."--Provided by publisher
