As you have probably noticed, posting on Pandaemonium has been erratic recently. This is largely the result of my working on a new book, the provisional title of which is Not So Black and White: The History of Race From White Supremacy to the Politics of Identity. (The actual title will be finalised in the New Year.) It is a history of the interaction between race, class and identity, placing contemporary debates, particularly about the politics of identity, in the context of a long history. It will be published by Hurst by the end of next year (though that, of course, depends on when I finish writing it). More news in due course, and perhaps extracts, too. But, in the meantime, my apologies if posting on Pandaemonium gets even more erratic.
