Twenty years since the publication of its last edition and more than thirty years since the publication of the original book, Michael Omi and Howard Winant are pleased to offer the third edition of Racial Formation in the United States (July 2014). The book has been substantially revised, but our overall purpose and vision remains the same: to provide an account of how concepts of race are created and transformed, how they become the focus of political conflict, and how they come to shape and permeate both identities and institutions.
The steady journey of the U.S. toward a majority nonwhite population, the ongoing evisceration of the political legacy of the early post-World War II civil rights movement, the initiation of the ‘war on terror’ with its attendant Islamophobia, the rise of a mass immigrants rights movement, the formulation of race/class/gender ‘intersectionality’ theories, and the election and reelection of a black President of the United States are some of the many new racial conditions Racial Formation now covers.
