    schema:reviewBody ""Why is race so central to our experience and our social system? Why does racism endure after the civil rights movement, the overthrow of apartheid, and the demise of colonialism? The World Is a Ghetto is a daring rethinking of the dynamics of race on a world scale." "The World Is a Ghetto compares post-World War II racial dynamics in four countries/regions: the United States, South Africa, Brazil, and the European Union. Expanding and deepening his earlier work on "racial formation," Winant argues that race remains crucial both for contemporary politics and for concepts of identity and culture. In the years since World War II, he writes, not only the United States but the whole world has undergone a massive racial transformation. The old system of racial domination - of white supremacy - has been challenged more comprehensively, more effectively, than ever before. But despite the real successes of movements for racial justice and democracy in the U.S. and globally, racism has not been destroyed."--Jacket." ;
