Over a decade has passed since the first edition of Race and Racism: An Introduction, in which anthropologist Carolyn Fluehr-Lobban attempted to demystify the dynamic concept of race. By defining race as a changing, however, Fluehr-Lobban implies that no study of the subject will ever remain timely for long. With that in mind, she has presented a new edition of the book that successfully achieves two important goals. It retains the most relevant information on the nature of race and racism from the inaugural version. In addition, Fluehr-Lobban successfully takes on the challenge of examining the changes in today’s racial landscape.... Over the past 15 years, changes in the national conversation on race have necessitated a reintroduction of Carolyn Fluehr-Lobban’s work–and 15 years from now, if not sooner, new changes will warrant another edition, no doubt. The second edition of Race and Racism extends the author’s impressive contributions to the present day in ways that will benefit students and instructors of anthropology, sociology, education, communication, and ethnic studies—and leave them wondering where the conversation will take us before the third edition rolls around.
