A groundbreaking collection of seminal works by renowned anthropologist and cultural critic, Ghassan Hage. Praised by internationally acclaimed author of Complaint!, Sara Ahmed, as 'a new way of accounting for race, its affective grammars, its holds and habits.'
The Racial Politics of Australian Multiculturalism brings together some of the most important and sought-after works by one of Australia’s leading anthropologists and cultural critics: Ghassan Hage. This groundbreaking collection features the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Hage’s seminal publication, White Nation: Fantasies of White Supremacy in a Multicultural Society, and the twentieth anniversary edition of Hage’s follow-up publication, Against Paranoid Nationalism: Searching for Hope in a Shrinking Society.
Along with a compendium of Hage’s later writings, The Racial Politics of Australian Multiculturalism is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand the complexities of modern-day race politics on the unceded lands of a settler colonial society.
