The Wages of Whiteness: Race and the Making of the American Working Class

by David R Roediger
£14.99   paperback  Verso (2007)

The Wages of Whiteness: Race and the Making of the American Working Class by David R Roediger Combining classical Marxism, psychoanalysis, and the new working-class history pioneered by E.P. Thompson and Herbert Gutman, David Roediger's widely acclaimed book provides an original study of the formative years of working-class racism in the United States. This, he argues, cannot be explained simply with reference to economic advantage; rather, white-working class racism is underpinned by a complex series of psychological and ideological mechanisms that reinforce racial stereotypes, and thus help to forge the identities of white workers in opposition to Blacks.
Ina new preface, Roediger reflects onteh reception, influence and critical response to The Wages Of Whiteness, while Katherine Cleaver's insightful introduction hails the importance of a work that has become a classic.
