Product description

Review

Could hardly be more relevant ... it feels like a light switch being flicked on" -- Owen Jones

Transformative and revolutionary ... offers us a necessary and critical way forward -- Robin DiAngelo, author of White Fragility

The most courageous book to date on the problem of race in the Western mindNew York Times

Vital and hopeful … Whether you’re an institution … or an individual in moral paralysis, dumbfounded by the febrile emotions now at large … you are not alone; hope is on its way" (Colin Grant, Observer) -- Colin Grant ― Observer

Shocking and provocative … he uses his personal story to make his arguments so skilfully that the book is both a memoir and a strident call to arms ― Irish Times

An electrifying combination of ethics, history, law and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative … an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step ― The Voice

One of the US’s most respected scholars of race and history… Kendi’s argument is brilliantly simple … he rejects the idea that racism is born out of ignorance. Racism, history shows, is born out of its profitability and utility … His honesty … is one of the most powerful elements in this compelling book’ AFUA HIRSCH, Guardian -- Afua Hirsch ― Guardian

Gives us the tools to make changes in our own lives and society at large. A must-read" (June Sarpong, author of Diversify) -- June Sarpong, author of Diversify

Makes clear how we all must engage in the essential soul-searching to understand our own racism and the personal action required to become antiracist" (Lord Herman Ouseley, former Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality and of Kick It Out) -- Lord Herman Ouseley, former Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality and of Kick It Out

This is no guidebook to getting woke ... Never wavering, Kendi methodically examines racism through numerous lenses: power, biology, ethnicity, body, culture, and so forth. This unsparing honesty helps readers, both white and people of colour, navigate this difficult intellectual territory. EssentialKirkus

So vital. As a society, we need to start treating antiracism as action, not emotion – and Kendi is helping us do that" (Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race) -- Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race

No less than a road map for social change through a remarkable, personal and deeply touching journey. If you take the business of fighting oppression seriously and want to make a difference, this is something you need to read" (Leslie Thomas, QC) -- Leslie Thomas, QC

One of the pre-eminent intellectuals on race -- Owen Jones

Groundbreaking, brilliant, fearless -- David Olusoga (on Stamped from the Beginning) ― Observer

You should read it for its arguments about what racism is. Nor should you dodge it on the basis that you knew all this already – like me, you almost certainly didn't -- David Aaronovitch (on Stamped from the Beginning) ― The Times

Lucid, accessible, unyielding. Kendi’s most important insight might help rethink anti-racist activism -- Sadiah Qureshi (on Stamped from the Beginning) ― New Statesman

Everyone should have a copy of this important, poignant and timely book -- Christofere Fila ― Amnest International UK

A work of immense moral authority, brilliantly told, it's deeply humane, revolutionary, essential -- Thomas Penn ― History Today

An incredible book -- Gina Rubel ― Techregister --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
