Rosen Pub Group
Despite the long struggle to eliminate racism, it is still very much with us. Since 9/11, racism appears to be on the rise, making it more important than ever before to understand the meaning of race and the effect it has on society. Author Alana Lentin maps the emergence and development of ideas about race through political history right up to modern debates about multiculturalism and Islamophobia, and considers the implications of a “post-racial” society at a time when science has shifted focus to genetics over culture. Provocative and intelligent reading for the newcomer and expert alike, this invaluable resource exposes the roots of racial thought and demonstrates why it has remained crucial to our everyday lives.
