A very strong anthology that draws together new, innovative, and important research and grounds it in a forceful overarching argument. This volume exhibits remarkable breadth and diversity of subjects, methodologies, and conclusions, as well as a broad perspective on racial politics that moves well beyond the binaries (white-black, sacred-secular, liberal-conservative) that have typically framed discussions of this sort.
