summary
“This is a first-class collection of readings. The Bubbling Cauldron makes a significant contribution because it confronts many of the current dimensions of the debate over race, ethnicity, and class. There is no other collection that does this in such a provocative and useful way.” --Raymond S. Franklin, director of the Michael Harrington Center, Queens College, CUNY, and author of Shadows of Race and Class

Cities in the United States and around the world continue to struggle with the tensions of racial and ethnic power conflicts. Urban centers have found themselves squeezed between global economics and global media on the one hand and the ever-changing daily practices of their citizens on the other. These essays by prominent writers on racial issues provide a telling background for ongoing discussions about multiculturalism, cultural politics, and urban crises.

The Bubbling Cauldron illustrates why race is still a central source of meaning, identity, and power-and why it is not just enduring but intensifying as a category with ever more fluid economic, cultural, and social borders.

Michael Peter Smith is professor of community studies and development at the University of California, Davis. Joe R. Feagin is graduate research professor in sociology at the University of Florida.
