Ideas, policies, conflicts about race and images of nationalism have been major themes of politics for more than a century. By comparing three prominent cases, this book illuminates the particular experiences of South Africa, the United States, and Brazil, but also uses comparisons to reveal patterns and linkages between race, nation, state and class dynamics not otherwise apparent. This provides a basis for more informed thinking about how these issues will play out in the future. No other study has provided as comprehensive an analysis of these pressing issues in these three major countries.
