Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A strong first chapter, drawing on analyses of cultural hybridity by Stuart Hall and Paul Gilroy, paves the way for a delicately nuanced tight-rope walk through the history of assimilation, resistance, 'blackness', 'ethnic nationalism', bringing us to today's 'new transgressive modes of being' ... An important and enjoyable book." New Times

"Karen Ross has written a most valuable and acutely observed book which should be required reading in all media institutions." Louis Danner-Mahoney, Vice-President, Equity, and Chair, Afro-Asian Committee
