To read Gargi Bhattacharyya is always enlightening: she teaches how to think, not just what to think; she engages her readers as citizens, not just professors; and she grounds her scholarship in movements for liberation. Rethinking Racial Capitalism will transform our understanding of one of the key issues of the day - how capitalism and racism work together. -- Arun Kundnani, New York University
An acutely observed, innovative and thought-provoking study of the articulation of racism with the development of capitalism. Replete with intersectional insights, it extends contemporary debate through a feminist lens. Careful socio-economic and political analysis is complemented with attention to issues of affect such as the trans-generational carryover of trauma. An excellent combination of analytical rigour with political acumen and compassion. A must-read for anyone concerned about the effects of racial capitalism. -- Avtar Brah, Professor Emerita of Sociology, Birkbeck College, University of London
[Bhattacharyya] uses the concept of "racial capitalism" to understand how racism enables major aspects of capitalist forms of development [and] argues that the concepts on which racial capitalism is based can also be used to marginalize groups by gender identity, disability, and age. * CHOICE *
