Twelve American academics from the fields of philosophy and political science contribute 12 essays examining the nature and relation between race and ethnic identities, and the social consequences of the complex relations between them. The text explores whether it makes sense to speak of racial and ethnic identities, especially of Black and Latino identities, and if so, how these identities should be conceptualized, and if/how they are related to gender. It also considers how race and ethnicity have influenced the lot of some social groups in significant ways, including how racially defined institutions deal with racial assimilation, how different concepts of race and ethnicity influence public policy and various forms of racism, how exploited racial and ethnic groups might be effectively recognized, and the role of affect in social justice as dispensed by the courts.
