University of Chicago Press

The introduction lays out the central claims of the book and situates its historical, ethnographic, and theoretical interventions. It also provides necessary historical and contemporary background information on French politics, Manouches, and jazz manouche. Major themes include raciosemiotics, ethnorace, colorblind racism, cultural citizenship, cultural activism, commodification, and political economy. Using the concept of ambivalent essentialism, the introduction argues that ideologies of ethnoracial difference unfold dialectically with the development of jazz manouche.

Keywords:   ambivalent essentialism, politics, raciosemiotics, ethnorace, colorblind racism, cultural citizenship, cultural activism, political economy, commodification
