This chapter examines race as a social divison by employing the distinctive concept of the "labour of division" (Hetherington and Munro, 1997). this idea emphasizes the effort, or labour, entailed in the construction and maintenance of divisions. In other words, social divisions are constructions that require work to manufacture and maintain distinctive ways of "seeing" the world. Vision, power and expertise are implicated in these constructions, as we will see in sections 2, 3 and 4.
