From the Editor's Note
"As editors, we have been surprised that we've had so few submissions about race over the past three-and-a-half years. Are anthropologists no longer interested in the topic—or feel that they've exhausted what they have to say about race? Or has the world changed, with race today a less salient category of everyday life and analysis? The articles in this issue suggest otherwise—that race remains a significant and pressing social category, not only in the United States but also beyond, perhaps more so today than ever—and that anthropologists should be playing a vital role in its analysis."
