Despite the fact that we've spent hundreds of millions of dollars promoting tolerance, racism is still prevalent today. In fact, since 9-11 the subject of race, and exactly what this means, has become more important than ever before. Alana Lentin traces the development and mutation of ideas about race, through political history right up to modern debates about ethnicity and xenophobia, and considers the implications of a 'raceless' society amid concerns about diluted traditions and identities. Thought-provoking and intelligent, this invaluable resource exposes the roots of racist thought, and reveals how it has remained a part of our everyday lives. Alana Lentin is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Sussex, UK.
