Jodi Melamed is assistant professor of English and Africana Studies at Marquette University.
"A brilliant correction to both Weber and Winant, Represent and Destroy demonstrates how `the control over the means of rationality' characterizes post-World War II US liberal racial orders. Working against the grain of change-as-progress, Jodi Melamed painstakingly demonstrates how official anti-racism has steadied, rather than dissolved, race as a structuring force of capitalism." -Ruth Wilson Gilmore, author of Golden Gulag: Prisons, Surplus, Crisis and Opposition in Globalizing California
