In this work of historical imagination, Jacobson argues that race resides in contingencies of politics and culture. Linking "whiteness studies" to traditional historical inquiry, he shows that in a nation of immigrants, "race" has been at the core of civic assimilation--ethnic minorities, in becoming American, were re-racialized to become Caucasian.
