The September 2011 issue of the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science might be of interest to our readers. It is a special issue on "Race, Religion, and Late Democracy" edited by John L. Jackson, Jr. and David Kyuman Kim. The special issue also includes an article by our contributor, Ed Blum. In their introduction, the editors write:

How does democracy say “race” and “religion”? In light of recent and not-so-recent political developments across the globe, one might proclaim in the spirit of Baldwin, that democracy does not dare to say “race” or “religion” with ease or with pleasure(6-7).

They continue that "religion and race continue to haunt" conceptions of democracy (7), and their special issue pulls together an impressive collection of scholars to discuss these relationships. I posted the table of contents below.
