Race, Racism And Development

Author:

‘Race, Racism and Development’ is the first book to place constructions of race and racism at the centre of a comprehensive analysis of the dominant discourses and practices of development. The author compares and contrasts two key theoretical approaches to race the postcolonial approach and a political economy approach – to provide the reader with provocative theoretical analyses, illuminated by topical case studies. Organised thematically, the insightful work includes a strong historical component, with parallels between the contemporary world and the colonial period. The book tackles human rights, imperialism, culture, ethnic conflict, HIV/Aids and the role of diasporas, and highlights the latent racialisation in such debates to argue that development can only be understood within a full understanding of the relationship between north and south.
