"Stanley R. Bailey has written the most accurate and important book on racial attitudes in Latin America. Based on representative data of the Brazilian population and systematic empirical research, Professor Bailey shows us that North American theories of racial identity and racial group interests find little support in Brazil, where the African origin population is nearly three times as large as that of the United States. Anyone interested in understanding race writ-globally should read Legacies of Race." (Edward E. Telles Princeton University, author of Race in Another America: The Significance of Skin Color in Brazil)
"A highly original and innovative breakdown of the complex dynamics of race in contemporary Brazil. Bailey interrogates the long-standing notion that a denial of racial discrimination is a key ingredient in Brazilian racial common sense. His work will give rise to considerable debate." (G. Reginald Daniel University of California, Santa Barbara, author of Race and Multiraciality in Brazil and the United States)
"Legacies of Race takes on two issues of fundamental importance in social and political analysis―false consciousness and the discontinuity between elite and mass politics―and engages both issues in the most relevant contemporary policy context―race. It is a breakthrough contribution." (Paul Sniderman Stanford University)
"Legacies of Race offers a comprehensive and insightful analysis. ...this book is a necessary and important contribution. It will provide an obligatory reference for understanding racial identication and inequality in Brazil and beyond. Scholars interested in cultural boundaries and in stratication processes will also benet from this book." (Florencia Torche American Journal of Sociology)
