White Identities Summary

White Identities: A Critical Sociological Approach by Simon Clarke

This book guides students as they explore how white identities are forged using both sociological and psycho-social ideas.

Whiteness has traditionally been seen as 'ethnically transparent' - the marker against which other ethnicities are measured. Only recently have scholars moved away from focusing on ethnic minorities and instead oriented their studies around the construction of white identities.

Including an excellent survey of the existing literature and original research from the UK, this book will be an invaluable guide for sociology students taking modules in race and ethnicity.
