More About the Author

I am an academic interested in 'race', racism and the ways people produce their social identities. Currently working in the Department of Social Policy and Criminology at the Open University, UK.

I live in Bristol with my wife and three children, and enjoy cricket and football. I tweet about sport, sociology and politics via my account, @stevegarner5

At the moment I'm working slowly on a couple of book-length projects that will round up and draw to a close a period of research and reflection on how white identities are made in the UK context.

Product Description

Review

Garner's text is to be applauded for a number of reasons. He has thoughtfully grappled with the complexities of racisms and presented them here in a way which is coherent, informed and engaging. His illustrative examples and prompts for reflection demonstrate the importance of the debates discussed for an international readership. This book will appeal to all who are keen to acquire the fundamentals about how we have arrived at our contemporary understanding of racisms
Muzammil Quraishi

In this novel textbook Steve Garner guides students innovatively through an important array of racial, ethnic, class, and gender issues, often with attention to intersectional issues or cross-national comparisons. Few textbooks have the international savvy this provides for topics from institutional racism and racialization to immigration and Islamophobia. An overview text, this will be of great use to instructors who seek to provoke undergraduates into thinking deeply about these challenging, critical-for-society issues

a brilliant introduction on different kinds of racisms and racist practices within societies. It also provides an account of the historical conditions that led to the development of racism, and leads you to think about the institutional racism of contemporary society.

Racism is here and now and not consigned to the past!
He gets it!
