Publisher Description

'The most courageous book to date on the problem of race' New York Times

*THE GLOBAL MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER - NOW REVISED AND UPDATED*


In HOW TO BE AN ANTIRACIST Ibram X. Kendi, one of the world's most influential scholars on racism, demolishes the idea of a post-racial society, punctures the myths and taboos that cloud our understanding of racism and presents a radically new approach to tackling it.

He shows how everyone is, at times, complicit in maintaining the structure of racism though we rarely realise it, and gives us the tools to identify and change those behaviours.

Uncompromising but essential, HOW TO BE AN ANTIRACIST sparked a new conversation about being antiracist around the world, showing that until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem.

Informative and reasoned

Compassion defeats Racism not Laws

Well reasoned arguments which sadly are based on an unrealistic premise that; correct legislation can defeat racism.
Given that racism originated in the mind (as all ideologies do), legislations do not change how people think but may affect the outward working of those thoughts (behaviour). Nevertheless, rectifying iniquitous laws is simply the right thing to do.

Perfect For Combatting Racism!!

This books is wonderful!

It was an eye opener. It taught me the facts and figures of racism-both past and present- the racist ideas that justified racism and racist policies and taught me how to be anti-racist- focus on changing racist power and policy, not people.

I would highly recommend.

Although the book is from an American point of view, many if not all of the points made can be made applicable to the U.K and other countries.
