Encyclopedia of Race & Racism is the first comprehensive treatment of the anthropological, sociological, historical, economic and scientific issues related to race and racism in the modern era. Predicated on the premise that race is not a natural, but a wholly social construct that developed historically as a part of culture, Encyclopedia of Race & Racism explores in detail the ideas of race and racism along with their social and scientific consequences.

Approximately 400 articles by more than 300 expert contributors from around the globe provide a detailed examination of the historical, scientific and political context surrounding ideas of race and racism. With its broad, international perspective, Encyclopedia of Race & Racism offers clear, insightful analyses of the many factors involved in this divisive issue. Written for the non-specialist, articles address the theoretical topics that have shaped modern ideas about race and racism, as well as explore more specific subjects in related disciplines and fields. Articles also include a detailed bibliography of suggested additional reading and sources for further research.

In addition to A-Z articles, Encyclopedia of Race & Racism includes biographical profiles of dozens of significant theorists, as well as political and social leaders, and notorious racists. It also features a carefully chosen selection of primary source and historical documents that enhance and reinforce content. Value-added features include more than 250 black-and-white illustrations, maps, charts and photographs; a thematic outline; a filmography; extensive cross-referencing; and a comprehensive general index.
