Product Details


“No contemporary intellectual has better illuminated the interwoven social histories and conceptual dimensions of race and class domination. With this stunning new collection of essays, David Roediger once again demonstrates that he is a vital thinker for all of us seeking to bridge the imperatives of economic and social justice.”
—Nikhil Singh, New York University

“David Roediger’s work is always as learned as it is profoundly engaged with the pursuit of social justice. From his signature study of the ‘wages of whiteness,’ to the analysis of links between settler colonial dispossession, gendered social reproduction, plantation management, and immigrant labor in the making of modern racial capitalism—Roediger’s bold commitments to demonstrating the historical and ongoing implications of race and class in the United States are timely, and more necessary than ever.”
—Lisa Lowe, Tufts University

“These bracing essays express hard truths and grounded hopes as they help us to rethink a past too much with us still. Portraying a history of oppression and resistance made at the intersections of social identities, Roediger makes sophisticated analyses of culture and political economy accessible to scholars and to activists.”
—Kimberlé Crenshaw, Columbia University School of Law

“When it comes to thinking about the history of racism, anti-racism and the US working class, David Roediger has no peer. Incisive, provocative, and uncannily timely, Class, Race, and Marxism reckons honestly with the challenges of building class solidarity across the fissures of race, the difficulties of writing about it, and the ways in which the two are entwined. If there is a single lesson here, it is that solidarity is not forever—it is elusive, fragile, and hard as hell.”
—Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Hammer and Hoe: Alabama Communists During the Great Depression


“David Roediger wades into the fray with refreshing nuance and generosity.”
In These Times

“A wealth of interesting historical insights and a breath of fresh air for anyone who feels there is a space to be found between the caricatures that ‘Tumblr social justice warriors’ and ‘old white men of the left’ paint of each other.”
—Nathan Akehurst, Morning Star

“Roediger’s book couldn’t have appeared at a more timely moment.”
