Race Trouble provides an analysis of the racial situation in post-apartheid South Africa and makes an argument for a shift in focus in the social sciences, from racism to race trouble.Transformation is reshaping the socio-economic and social psychological dimensions of life in South Africa, which continues to be racialised in profoundly troubling ways. Durrheim, Mtose and Brown, leading authors in their field, develop a theory of the production of racially troubled identities by way of an analysis of discourse, spaces and routines for perpetuating segregation and inequality. They argue that these practices and identities are better analysed in terms of their architecture and choreography than glossed as racism. Instead of making judgements of racism, this innovative and accessible book confronts the ways that we do race in our everyday interactions.
