“A provocative and stimulating book which deserves to be widely read.”
Elaine Moriarty, lecturer in Sociology at Trinity College, Dublin

“I only regret that a guide like this was not in existence when sixty years ago I started to study that phenomenon, one of the most insidious and complex of our times.”
Zygmunt Bauman, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Leeds

A comprehensive study of multiculturalism, Islamophobia and the way race and culture are being redefined.

Despite the long struggle to eliminate racism, it is still very much with us. In fact, 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. Alana Lentin maps the emergence and development of ideas about race, right up to modern debates about multiculturalism and Islamophobia, and considers the implications of a ‘post-racial’ society at a time when science has placed genetics over culture. This invaluable resource exposes the roots of racial thought and demonstrates why it has remained a component to our everyday lives.

“This is a lively, accessible and up to date introduction that should be read by anyone who wants to understand the impact of racism in the West today.”
Alastair Bonnett – Professor of Social Geography at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne
