Racism provides an illuminating general overview of the history and debate surrounding the concept of racism. Its objective is to argue that the concept should retain a central place in the analysis of both the historical development, and contemporary structure of, capitalist societies. This new edition brilliantly examines the war in the former Yugoslavia, the cases of Stephen Lawrence and Rodney King, and the recent wave of Islamophobia. This is intelligent and insightful reading for anyone with an interest in the study and evolution of racism in today's world.
