Global Mixed Race is a very welcome addition to the literature on race and mixedness. Its vibrant case studies, comparative frame and historical grounding offer a useful guide for understanding what contemporary concepts and experiences of 'mixed race' owe to global trends and local specificities. A must-read for anyone interested in racialization in its many forms. -- Kimberly Dacosta,author of Making Multiracials: State, Family, and Market in the Redrawing of the Color Line
This superb volume lays the groundwork for an emergent and exciting global comparative framework for understanding mixed race categories and identities. By decentering U.S. mixed race histories and experiences, these essays make us attentive to how notions such as nation and class, and processes such as colonization and migration, are fundamentally complicit in shaping the very definition and meaning of 'mixed race.' -- Michael Omi,co-author of Racial Formation in the United States
Mixtureracial, national, ethnicwhile not a new phenomenon is increasingly evident in todays globalized world.

This fine book makes valuable contributions to the study of race, ethnicity, and gender in a period of unprecedented global change.Summing up: Highly recommended. * Choice *
