A fascinating topic looking into the nuances and minutiae of 'the racialising process'; a much-needed intervention in something that sociologists, historians and cultural theorists have somehow neglected: how does exactly change happen on the ground, bit by bit, step by step, letter after letter. Yes this is a book that draws on archived letters that the author has followed tirelessly and meticulously, developing a fascinating rhythm of reading and analysis that offers insightful ideas on how to do archival research with letters in the social sciences. A sophisticated discussion weaving together fascinating ideas and theoretical perspectives, some of them not so much a la mode of contemporary debates in sociology and yet so timely and so important. And finally a beautiful book, well crafted, poetically written and yet accessible not only to savant academic circles but to wider audiences, and most importantly to the students we teach and care about. My social theory, gender studies and research methods seminars will be richer in autumn and I have to thank Liz Stanley for this gift. Read and teach this book: it is a classic in becoming!
