Race and Class Distinctions Within Black Communities : A Racial-Caste-in-Class Hardback
Edited by Paul Camy (West Virginia State University, USA) Mocombe, Carol (Wolverhampton University, UK) Tomlin, Cecile (University of Nottingham, UK) Wright
Part of the Routledge Research in Race and Ethnicity series
This book offers both a philosophical and sociological model for understanding the constitution of identity in general, and black social identity in particular, without reverting to either a social or racial deterministic view of identity construction.
Using a variant of structuration theory (phenomenological structuralism) this work, against contemporary postmodern and post-structural theories, seeks to offer a dialectical understanding of the constitution of black American and British life within the class division and social relations of production of the global capitalist world-system, while accounting for black social agency.
