    Abstract

    Contemporary discussion about race has a tendency to set off out without first checking the rear view mirror. In Theories of Race and Ethnicity: Contemporary Debates and Perspectives, in contrast, Murji and Solomos identify what has and has not been covered, and so appeal at the outset for a 'more sustained' account of changing research agendas of race and ethnic relations. Taken as a whole, the collection allows the editors to contemplate 'what factors explain the mobilizing power of ideas about race and ethnicity in the contemporary environment?' and whether indeed 'it is the "real" rather than race that should be placed in quotation marks'.
