Essays focus on epistemological and methodological issues in the analysis of racially marked forms of ?white? identity, subjectivity and power. A strong critique of related work in this field is developed, with reference to the USA, South Africa and the UK. Drawing on sociological, anthropological and geographical theories of social movements and cultural change and using historical and contemporary case studies, essays argue for a genealogical approach to anti-racism as a global social movement, and for the significance of slavery and colonial history in the dismantling of English nationalism, particularly with regard to landscape and place.
