How have civil rights transformed racial politics in America? Connecting economic and social reforms to racial and class inequality,Conjuring Crisiscounters the myth of steady race progress by analyzing how the federal government and local politicians have sometimes "reformed" politics in ways that have amplified racism in the post civil-rights era.

In the 1990s at Fort Bragg and Fayetteville, North Carolina, the city's dominant political coalition of white civic and business leaders had lost control of the city council. Amid accusations of racism in the police department, two white council members joined black colleagues in support of the NAACP's demand for an investigation. George Baca's ethnographic research reveals how residents and politicians transformed an ordinary conflict into a "crisis" that raised the specter of chaos and disaster. He explores new territory by focusing on the broader intersection of militarization, urban politics, and civil rights.
George Baca is a research scholar at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York. He is the editor ofNationalism's Bloody Terrain: Racism, Class Inequality, and the Politics of Recognition, coeditor ofEmpirical Futures: Anthropologists and Historians Engage the Work of Sidney W. Mintz, and associate editor ofDialectical Anthropology.
"Baca provides a valuable window into the complex world of modern racism, in which it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the victim and the perpetrator. Highly recommended."
"Baca does a solid job of providing local and regional back story to the ongoing racial dramas in Fayetteville, North Carolina. His work make a very powerful statement about the care citizens have to take vis-a-vis the statements made by their political representatives regarding whose interests they serve."
