Explorations in Ethnic Studies
The first decade of coloured ethnic studies has passed quietly. This uncelebrated passing is probably more related to what did not occur in conceptual, methodological, and theoretical developments during the ten-year period than what did, in fact, happen. The decade can be characterized as one in which the ethnic studies movement suffered from intellectual dropsy. The politics of ethnic studies are all of those activities which have served to restrict its development.
