A conceptually power-packed volume that is at once erudite and accessible, expansive and focused, true to sociological traditions yet stimulatingly exploratory. Scholars and students will be served very well by this absorbing, far-reaching enquiry into ethnicity and race. -- Raymond Taras
An excellent book both for those who are new to the study of race and ethnicity and for established scholars. It will no doubt be the text of choice on many courses and by many students. -- Tariq Modood
A fresh and critical take on key concepts and ideas in the field of race and ethnicity. Nasar Meer's account is a must for all students who are interested in deepening their understanding and it will become an important point of reference. -- John Solomos
This concise, profound, and beautifully written book offers a tour de force across the landscape of race and ethnicity by a young author who masters them all. -- Per Mouritsen
The scope of selection truly demonstrates the profound intersections of racial issues with everyday phenomena and the general ubiquity of racial politics... this book successfully outlines the dynamics of the field and provides an excellent account of key concepts of essential topics of 'race' and ethnicity. Either as an engaging introduction to the discipline or a succinct reference to extend knowledge, the book is likely to appeal to a readership from within and beyond sociology; to undergraduates and researchers alike. -- Mengxi Pang, University of Glasgow
