Race after Sartre is the first book to systematically interrogate Jean-Paul Sartre's antiracist politics and his largely unrecognized contributions to critical race theories, postcolonialism, and Africana existentialism. The contributors offer an overview of Sartre's positions on racism as they changed throughout the course of his life, providing a coherent account of the various ways in which he understood how racism could be articulated and opposed. They interrogate his numerous and influential works on the topic, and his insights are utilized to assess some of today's racial quandaries, including the November 2005 riots in France, Hurricane Katrina, immigration, affirmative action, and reparations for slavery and apartheid. The contributors also consider Sartre's impact upon the insurgent antiracist activists and writers who also walked the roads to freedom that Sartre helped pave. "Jean-Paul Sartre's considerable contributions to comprehending and challenging racism both in its colonial and postcolonial contexts have often been overlooked. Race After Sartre corrects that oversight once and for all, indicating the range, depth, and quality of Sartre's pivotal thinking on metropolitan racism, the colonial condition, the relation of anti-Semitism to anti-Black racisms, the emotional charge of racism, the challenge of racism to freedom and freedom to the range of racisms. But it also signals the importance of the Sartrean corpus to understanding the range of racisms we continue to face today. Jonathan Judaken's collection alters how Sartre will be read, and adds considerably to our understanding of racial matters." - David Theo Goldberg, author of The Threat of Race: Reflectionson Racial Neoliberalism "This book will go a long way toward restoring Sartre to his rightful place as one of the modern world's greatest political moralists. In it, Jonathan Judaken has assembled an impressive lineup of authors, topics, and essays demonstrating the continuing vitality of Sartre's thought." - Ronald Aronson, author of Living without God: New Directions for Atheists, Agnostics, Secularists, and the Undecided "This book demonstrates anew Sartre's ability to write cogently and passionately against oppression and in support of progressive politics." - William L. McBride, author of Sartre's Political Theory "I like the way the book locates Sartre historically and shows how he still speaks to us today with regard to the important topic of race." - Sonia Kruks, author of Retrieving Experience: Subjectivity and Recognition in Feminist Politics Contributors include Paige Arthur, Robert Bernasconi, Judith Butler, George Ciccariello-Maher, Christian Delacampagne, Lewis Gordon, Jonathan Judaken, Steve Martinot, Mabogo P. More, and Richard Watts.
