CHOICE Review

A rising star in the field of race and ethnicity, sociologist Jung (Univ. of Massachusetts) delivers a tour de force on the origins and consequences of US racism. This work of rigorous historical and sociological thought built on empirical data dives into the sundry and varied ways in which white supremacy has been established in the US, particularly as forces of racial domination played out along the black-white color line and amid Latino, Asian, and Native populations. In three parts, Jung deconstructs the dominant and "common sense" assumptions regarding the definition and function of racism, the legal and political dynamics that established a racialized social contract in de jure and de facto practice, and the ideological mechanisms and material practices that coerce people into accepting racialized atrocities and mass suffering. Jung's work is deeply impressive. This book is a must read for any serious student of race, ethnicity, and racism given the sophistication of the argument, which also refuses to reduce the lived experiences of people of color to fodder for can(n)onical theorizing. Summing Up: Essential. All academic levels/libraries. --Matthew W. Hughey, University of Connecticut
