about

This book offers both a philosophical and sociological model for understanding the constitution of identity in general, and black social identity in particular, without reverting to either a social or racial deterministic view of identity construction. Using a variant of structuration theory (phenomenological structuralism) this work, against contemporary postmodern and post-structural theories, seeks to offer a dialectical understanding of the constitution of black American and British life within the class division and social relations of production of the global capitalist world-system, while accounting for black social agency. 

Paul Camy Mocombe is Professor of Philosophy and Sociology at West Virginia State University.Carol Tomlin is a Senior Lecturer in Education Studies at the University of Wolverhampton.Cecile Wright is Professor of Sociology, Honorary academic, University of Nottingham.
