In The Press

Professor Garner has refined and expanded his perceptive and critical text by engaging with the latest controversies and challenges presented by the pervasiveness of racist ideologies, policies and actions. The text represents a valuable contribution to this complex field which is all the more important given the instrumental use of racist politicised rhetoric in the USA and Europe and all that it leaves in its wake. This text will appeal to all those seeking to comprehend the origins of racisms but above all how they can be challenged.
