More About the Author

I am a political sociologist and social theorist. I work on the critical theorisation of race, racism and anti-racism and have done extensive research into the contemporary politics of (im)migration and collective action for migrants' rights and the politics of multiculturalism.


I recently joined the University of Western Sydney, Australia as a Senior Lecturer in Cultural and Social Analysis after six years at the Department of Sociology at the University of Sussex, UK.

Current research:

Currently, I am working on a new book project, Racism and Antiracism in the Digital Media Era (with Gavan Titley).

Latest research:

My latest research with Gavan Titley, conducted during a visiting fellowship at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry, Berlin, looked at the purported crisis of multiculturalism as the contemporary articulation of racism in a neoliberal age. Our book, The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age (with a preface by Gary Younge), was published by Zed Books in 2011 since when it has sold 1700 copies and been favourably reviewed in journals including Global Media and Communications, Ethnic and Racial Studies, and Social Identities. Visit www.multiculturecrisis.com for more details.

A special issue of the European Journal of Cultural Studies on Multiculturalism, edited by Gavan Titley and I, gathering articles by Les Back, Arun Kundnani, Peter Hervik, Ronit Lentin and others was published in April 2012.

My first book published in 2004 is entitled Racism and Anti-Racism in Europe (Pluto Press, 2004). I have also co-edited Race and State with Ronit Lentin (Cambridge Scholars' Press, 2006), the paperback edition of which was published in September 2008.

In 2008, I published an accessible insight into my approach to racism, Racism, (OneWorld). A US version of this book, Racism and Ethnic Discrimination was published by Rosen in 2011. The book was also turned into an audiobook, read by Rodney Gardiner (Bolinda, 2012).

The Politics of Diversity in Europe, co-edited with Gavan Titley of the National University of Ireland, is published by the Council of Europe in 2008.

In addition, I publish regularly in Ethnic and Racial Studies, the European Journal Social Theory, the European Journal of Cultural Studies, and Patterns of Prejudice among other journals. I am also a regular contributor to The Guardian, OpenDemocracy, and Eurozine.

I undertake peer review for Stanford University Press, Routledge, Sage, Pearson, Theory, Culture and Society, Ethnic and Racial Studies, and Cambridge Review of International Affairs, among others.

I am an editorial board member of the European Journal of Social Theory.

Product Description


By all standards, this is a remarkable book. It is a major contribution to our understanding and handling of one of the crucial contemporary issues that acquires more import and gravity by the day. (Zygmunt Bauman)

An excellent book, which enriches the tradition of political sociology conceptually, methodologically and substantively. (Peter Wagner, Professor of Social and Political Sciences, European University Institute - Florence)
