Summary

Concerned with ethnic identities in modern settings, this special issue:
*offers a theoretical synthesis of the main debates in the field and seeks to clarify a number of terms and concepts that are inconsistently used in literature;
*deals with the subjective identity choices made by individuals of biracial backgrounds;
*examines the differences between the ways in which the Israeli census constructs the ethnicity of immigrants and the ways in which immigrants themselves construct their identities;
*provides a rich mix of postmodern theorizing and anthropological concerns with dance and performance through an examination of Toronto's Caribana parade; and
*traces the historical conditions and circumstances attending the institutions of slavery and indentureship, and analyzes the ethnic and racial divisions between those of East Indian and those of African Descent.
