"The problem of the [20th] century is the problem of the color-line," W. E. B. Du Bois wrote in 1903. His words have proven sadly prophetic. As we enter the 21st century, the problem remains. This book speaks powerfully to the question of how the circumstances of race and racism have changed in our time-and how these changes will affect our future.
Preface Introduction: Race, Culture, and History 1. Racial Identity and the Project of Modernity 2. Race and Culture in a Consumer Society 3. Race, Nation, and the Global Economy Epilogue: the Future of Race Notes
Thomas C. Holt is Professor of History at the University of Chicago and the author of The Problem of Freedom.
Holt rightly asserts that our racial legacy should be a point of departure--not a destination--in examining the enduring nature of racial enmity. As a nation and as individuals, we must imagine ourselves beyond, while remaining aware of, those forces that are at the root of the enmity. -- Vernon Ford Booklist 20010101 Readers will benefit from Holt's expert and careful examination of these narratives of contradiction and incoherence as he attempts to forecast the reigning racial ethos for the next millennium, just as W.E.B. Du Bois did when he declared that the color line was the problem of the twentieth century. Breaking from traditional paradigms, Holt...focuses on...what role it plays in the economy and in consumer culture...Holt writes in clear, precise prose...and makes an important contribution to both public and academic discussions of race and labor and their intersections in U.S. politics. Publishers Weekly 20010108 Holt invokes W.E.B. DuBois's classic line from The Souls of Black Folk that 'the color line' was the problem of the twentieth century...Holt's Problem of Race aims a searchlight at [problems such as] how black men often serve as Rorschach tests for the self-images of white America (Michael Jordan, Colin Powell, 'Amos 'n Andy')...[His] finale is a sermonette to the coming generation to 'live as if the world...were color-blind...as if they were not 'black.' -- Dale Edwyna Smith Washington Post Book World 20010204 Thomas Holt is a black University of Chicago social and cultural historian whose major work, The Problem of Freedom, is a brilliant, multifaceted account of Jamaican race, labor and politics in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries...Holt asks...whether W.E.B. Du Bois's comment that the color line is the problem of the twentieth century remains the main question for our century. [He] addresses the issue from a global perspective on two axes: to place race in the context of both the national and global economies, and to adopt a 'global' theoretical framework of analysis that situates race historically in terms of the transformation of production regimes from early to late capitalism...in bold but sharp strokes. -- Stanley Aronowitz The Nation 20010312 When in 1903 W. E. B. Du Bois said that 'the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line,' he probably did not realize he was also defining a key issue of the new millennium. Thomas C. Holt focuses on several aspects of that problem, however, such as the glorification of the black athlete and entertainer at the expense of the average black person, the loss of industrial jobs that affects black workers financially and psychologically, and the dramatic rise of a consumer society that all too often has left black citizens far behind. -- Lee Milazzo Dallas Morning News 20010401 Debates about race often take the form of a mind game designed to establish whether or not a particular word or act is racially motivated...[This book] provides a compelling argument for rethinking our ideas about race. -- Frank Furedi New Statesman 20010423
