Product Description


'This is an extremely valuable investigation which should command the attention of scholars of both the United States and Africa, as well as those who desire an expert introduction to current debates concerning the complex interrelation of race and class in these societies. Cell's account of the existing literature and its limitations is provocative and his own analysis often highly original.' Eric Foner, Columbia University

'John Cell's work shows how much American historians, often given to exceptionalist arguments about the uniqueness of the American experience, can benefit from the insights of those who approach American historiography with the tools of other, equally complex, and less well-mined fields.' Robin W. Winks, Yale University

'John Cell's book is a sophisticated and provocative study of the history and historiography of racial segregation in South Africa and the United States. Some of his conclusions will be controversial, but he has clearly advanced the discussion of comparative white supremacy to a higher stage.' George M. Fredrickson, Northwestern University

Book Description

This book analyses the origins of segregation as a specific stage in the evolution of white supremacy in South Africa and the American South. Cell considers segregation as a distinct system that is closely associated with urbanisation, industrialisation and modern processes of state and party formation.
