About this book

Racism in America is most-commonly studied as white racism against minority groups (racial, gender, cultural).  Often overlooked in this area of study is the discrimination that exists within minority groups.  Through a detailed historical and sociological analysis, the author breaks down these pernicious, complex, and often misunderstood forms of skin color discrimination: their origins and their manifestations in modern world. 

Shedding new light on these sensitive issues, this volume will allow them to come to the forefront of academic research and open dialogue.  This comprehensive work will include coverage of skin color discrimination within racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender minority groups, and their particular forms and consequences. 

An Historical Analysis of Skin Color Discrimination is an timely and unique book for researchers studying the Sociology of Race and Racism, Gender Studies, LGBT Studies, Immigration, or Social Work.
