PUBLI : Linda Haapajärvi, « Book review : Getting respect. Responding to stigma and discrimination in the United States, Brazil, and Israel », European Journal of Cultural and Political Sociology, vol. 8, n° 1, 2020, p. 108 – 112


Three snap­shots set the scene for Getting Respect which reads as an extra­or­di­nary piece of soci­o­log­ical reporting over the expe­ri­ence of ethno-racial exclu­sion expe­ri­enced by five different stig­ma­tised groups in the three different coun­tries, that is by African Amer­i­cans, black Brazil­ians, Arab Pales­tinians, Ethiopian black Israeli, and Mizrachi Jews in the US, Brazilian, and Israeli contexts. Whereas the US-Brazil compar­ison of race-based stig­ma­ti­sa­tion builds on a long­standing tradi­tion in compar­a­tive race studies, the Israeli case unset­tles the symmetry of the research design. Whether this is a problem or an advan­tage is open to discussion.
