Violent Racism: Victimization, Policing and Social Context by Benjamin Bowling

This book gives us a detailed examination of the official documents—and of the historical origins—of racist violence in Britain. The author also employs the findings of this examination, as presented alongside an in-depth case study of racial attacks and police responses in East London, to ponder the question of why the ideas and language of white supremacy and racial exclusion direct violence at "non-white" individuals, and why police response is so routinely ineffectual. This volume reveals many insights into racist Britain that will be of interest to both academics in this area and those professionals who routinely deal with, or answer for, the acts and consequences of racism.
