The new edition of Race and Racism in Britain builds on the strengths of previous editions of this widely-used text in providing a detailed and critical analysis of race relations and forms of racism in British society today. The book begins by mapping a conceptual framework that seeks to locate the British experience within a broader context which it proceeds to apply in a systematic assessment of trends, developments and political and policy debates since the 1950s.

Product Description


Reviews of previous editions:

'...lucid and concise... the most thorough introduction to the politics of racism in contemporary Britain currently available.' - Michael Keith, Times Higher Education Supplement

'...Solomos is particularly good at raising theoretical issues and summarising the present state of current debates. This is a well-researched addition to the growing literature on 'race' politics and will be a very useful student text.' - Zig Layton-Henry, Political Studies

'...Accessible and innovative (a rare combination)...Solomos finds a way to put across the most penetrating and complex arguments without discouraging his target (student) readership...It will challenge afresh many an old hand in the 'race relations' industry.' - Susan J. Smith, Sociology

First Sentence
The study of race as a field of social scientific inquiry and research originated in the earlier part of the twentieth century with the work of a number of American sociologists and anthropologists, most notably during the 1920s and 1930s. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not good enough 4 May 2013
By Zingbo43 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book providing a historical and mostly political account of Blacks in Britain but it fails to provide an adequate amount of statistics and also fails to target some key areas like the criminal justice system and police force thoroughly. It is a good introduction but a more substantial and less fluffy book is necessary to really understand the historical development of Blacks status in Britain.
