"Race" is so highly charged and loaded a concept it often hampers critical thinking about racial practice and policy. A philosophical approach allows us to isolate and analyse the key questions: What is race? Can we do without race? What is racism and why is it wrong? What should our policies on race and racism be? The Philosophy of Race presents a concise and up-to-date overview of the central philosophical debates about race. It then builds on this philosophical foundation to analyse the sociopolitical questions of racism and race-relevant policy. Throughout, the discussion is illustrated with a wide range of examples: Afro-American 'blackness'; British-Asian racial formation; Aboriginal identity in Australia; the racial grouping of Romany-Gypsies and Jews in Europe; categories of race in Brazil; and the concept of model minorities in the US and UK.

Albert Atkin is Lecturer in Philosophy at Macquarie University, Sydney.

Review:

'Atkins crisply addresses the ongoing reality of race and racism after the disconnection of race from biological science. Comprehensive, balanced, clear, engaging and accessible for all academic levels.' --Naomi Zack, Professor of Philosophy, University of Oregon

'[Atkin] succeeds in creating new paths for breaking through epistemic boundaries of how one typically thinks about race and, by doing so, provides an opportunity to rethink current beliefs and practices regarding racism. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.' --M.W. Westmoreland, Villanova University, CHOICE (May 2013)
