Traces of History: Elementary Structures of Race

Traces of History: Elementary Structures of Race


Traces of History provides a brand new method of race and to comparative colonial reports. Bringing a ancient point of view to endure at the regimes of race that colonizers have sought to impose on Aboriginal humans in Australia, on Blacks and local american citizens within the usa, on Ashkenazi Jews in Western Europe, on Arab Jews in Israel/Palestine, and on humans of African descent in Brazil, this booklet exhibits how race marks and reproduces different relationships of inequality into which Europeans have coopted subaltern populations: territorial dispossession, enslavement, confinement, assimilation, and removal.

Charting the various modes of domination that engender particular regimes of race and the recommendations of anti-colonial resistance they entail, the booklet powerfully argues for cross-racial solidarities that recognize those old ameliorations.
