What People are Saying About This

L.H.M. Ling

'In Dark Threats and White Knights, Sherene H. Razack raises issues that are central to world politics today - especially in light of Anglo-American occupation of postwar Iraq - covering a range of scholarly, journalistic, and governmental sources. The book is clearly and eloquently written. I found it a compelling read.'

Cynthia Enloe

'With Dark Threats and White Knights, Sherene H. Razack has pulled back the curtain on a very distinctive form of national myth-making. This is a detailed case study of one country's international peacekeeping gone awry that, at a deeper level, gives the reader a new understanding of contemporary forms of institutionalized racism.'

Jean-Paul Brodeur

'Razack's unflinching look at one of the least glorious episodes of Canadian military history proves that committed research can produce knowledge that may free us from repeating patterns leading to shameful consequences.'

Didier Fassin

'Based on a thorough inquiry into the Canadian intervention in Somalia, Sherene Razack's book reveals the paradoxical relationships between international peacekeeping and racist violence, humanitarianism and imperialism, thus interrogating in a convincing and disquieting manner the new moral order of the world. A remarkable journey deep into the heart of whiteness.'
