After Race: Racism After Multiculturalism. Antonia Darder, Rodolfo D. Torres. New York: New York University Press, 2004. ISBN: 081478268X.
|Annotation||Pushes us beyond the old "race vs. class" debates to delve deeper into the structural conditions that spawn racism. Darder and Torres place the study of racism forthrightly within the context of contemporary capitalism. While agreeing with those who have argued that the concept of "race" does not have biological validity, they go further to insist that the concept also holds little political, symbolic, or descriptive value when employed in social science and policy research. Darder and Torres argue for the need to jettison the concept of "race," while calling adamantly for the critical study of racism. They maintain that an understanding of structural class inequality is fundamentally germane to comprehending the growing significance of racism in capitalist America.|

Race Pride and the American Identity. Joseph Tilden Rhea. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1997. ISBN: 0674566815.
|Keywords||Hispanic Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Asian Americans, African Americans, Native Americans, American Indians, Identity, Civil Rights|
|Annotation||The author argues that struggles for cultural representation constitute a distinct social movement, which he terms the Race Pride movement. While the earlier Civil Rights movement focused on obtaining legal inclusion, the Race Pride movement aimed at achieving cultural inclusion. Rhea suggests that multiculturalism's emphasis on diversity is not sufficient to solve America's racial problems. He concludes that Americans must now move beyond the celebration of difference by also affirming what is shared in the American experience.|
