Frequently bought together
Beginning with the ‘old history of capitalism’―the century-long discussion about empire and revolution in the Black radical tradition―this collection builds on that legacy. One by one, these learned and brilliant essays stretch and refine the meanings of racial capitalism, transforming and deepening our understanding of the histories they take up, and providing essential historical context and analytical clarity as we face the current crisis. -- Walter Johnson, author of The Broken Heart of America: St. Louis and the Violent History of the United States
Eschewing the notion of a universal capitalism under which racial capitalism is a variant, Histories of Racial Capitalism is an edifying analysis of the racial and racializing character of capitalism and capital. Deft in its engagement with gender, bondage, debt, empire, and indigeneity, this volume is an urgent and brilliantly transformative revelation of racial capitalism’s conceptual possibilities for defying disciplinary enclosures and provoking new questions. -- Sarah Haley, author of No Mercy Here: Gender, Punishment, and the Making of Jim Crow Modernity
Histories of Racial Capitalism is a stunning compilation of stellar original historical work that analyzes the co-constitutive dynamics of systems of global racial subordination and the capitalist social order. This volume will be required reading for a generation of scholars and activists. -- Michael Dawson, author of Blacks In and Out of the Left
