What do race, ethnicity and nationalism have to do with sex, and vice versa? This book explores how race is sexed and sex is raced, using examples to examine how sex shapes ideas and feelings about race, ethnicity and national identity and how sexual images, fears and desires shape racial, ethnic and national stereotypes and conflicts. Nagel skilfully blends styles of enquiry and interpretation from the social sciences and humanities to craft a convincing and illuminating account using images, poetry, fieldwork, internet postings, interviews, literature, ethnographies, historical texts, archival documents, biographies, census data, journals, and personal accounts.
