About this product
- DescriptionHow Race Survived US History explores how the idea of race was created and recreated in American history. From the late seventeenth century - the era in which Du Bois located the emergence of whiteness - through the American revolution and the emancipatory Civil War, to the civil-rights movement and the emergence of the American empire, David Roediger reveals how race did far more than persist as an exception in a progressive national history. Roediger examines how race intersected all that was dynamic and progressive in US history, from democracy and ecomic development to migration and globalization. Exploring the evidence that the USA will become a majority nwhite nation in the next fifty years, this masterful history shows how race remains at the heart of American life in the twenty-first century.
- Author BiographyDAVID R ROEDIGER is Kendrick C. Babcock Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of, among other books, The Wages of Whiteness and Working Towards Whiteness.
