Product description

Review

This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we'll no longer need such a book. Essential (Marlon James, author of Man Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings)

One of the most important books of 2017

A book that's set to blow apart the understanding of race relations in this country (Stylist)

An incisive and uncompromising commentator on the iniquities of oppression ... Comprehensive and journalistic, the book leaves a devastating trail of case histories, statistical and anecdotal evidence, personal stories and opinion about the manifestation of overt and covert racism ... Eddo-Lodge is a gifted writer, with a talent for bringing together debates around race, gender and class in a timely and accessible way (Times Literary Supplement)

Daring, interrogatory, illuminating. A forensic dissection of race in the UK from one of the country's most critical young thinkers. Reni's penetrative voice is like a punch to the jugular. Read it, then tell everyone you know

I've never been so excited about a book. Thank God somebody finally wrote it . Blistering . Absolutely vital writing from one of the most exciting voices in British politics. A stunningly important debut . Fellow white people: It's our responsibility as to read this book . This book is essential reading for anyone even remotely interested in living in a fairer, kinder and more equal world

It's deep, it's important and I suggest taking a deep breath, delving in and I promise you will come up for air woke and better equipped to understand the underlying issues of race in our society (ELLE)

A riveting deep-dive into the history and communication of race in Britain. From white-washing to intersectional feminism, it is an eviscerating and hugely educational read . This book is destined to become cult (Red)

A wake-up call to a nation in denial about the structural and institutional racisms occurring in our homes, offices and communities (Observer)

Laying bare the mechanisms by which we internalise the assumptions, false narratives and skewed perceptions that perpetuate racism, Eddo-Lodge enables readers of every ethnicity to look at life with clearer eyes. A powerful, compelling and urgent read (Ann Morgan, author of A Year of Reading the World)
