Books Info:

Rethinking the Racial Moment free pdf In recent years 'race' has fallen out of historiographical fashion, being eclipsed by seemingly more benign terms such as 'culture', 'ethnicity' and 'difference'. This timely and highly readable collection of essays re-energises the debate by carefully focusing our attention on local articulations of race and their intersections with colonialism and its aftermath. In "Rethinking the Racial Moment: Essays on the Colonial Encounter", Alison Holland and Barbara Brookes have produced a collection of studies that shift our historical understanding of colonialism in significant new directions. Their generous and exciting brief will ensure that the book has immediate appeal for multiple readers engaged in critical theory, as well as those more specifically involved in Australian and New Zealand history. Collectively, they offer new and invigorating approaches to understanding colonialism through drawing our attention to the importance of 'the moment' as cultural encounter in history.
