The Book

The subject of race, and exactly what this means, has become more important since 9-11 than ever before. Alana Lentin traces its development through political history right up to modern debates about ethnicity and xenophobia, and considers the implications of a ‘raceless' and truly multicultural society. Thought-provoking and intelligent, this invaluable resource exposes the earliest roots of racist thought, and reveals how it has tenaciously remained a part of our everyday lives.
