The Rhetoric Of Racism Revisited: Reparations Or Separation?
The Rhetoric of Racism Revisited: Reparations or Separation?
In this updated and significantly expanded edition of his The Rhetoric of Racism, Mark Lawrence McPhail responds to subsequent critiques and advances in scholarship. Like the earlier text, Revisited looks at the rhetorical dynamics of racism―how, in addition to social and material structures and institutions, language can be a cause and facilitator of racism. Revised introductions and four new chapters add thorough discussions of essentialism and racial difference; theories of complicity and coherence, including critical applications; the theory of racism as a problem of psychiatry; and perspectives on contemporary racial discourse.
