Product description

Review

“This question of whether we need to tiptoe respectfully around particular beliefs as somehow culturally privileged has been recently addressed by the science writer Kenan Malik in his interesting book on race, Strange Fruit. (The Times)

"A nicely provocative and stylish polemic." (The Guardian)

"Strange Fruit:Why Both Sides Are Wrong in the Race Debate has ignited a firestorm of controversy within the scientific community……Malik's extended argument for recognizing the complexity of racial identification is well worth reading for the clarity and insight he brings to the discussion." (Magill Book Reviews for MagillOnLiteraturePlus and Library Reference Center)

"[Malik's] tone is measured and his arguments well grounded. And underpinning his lucid and important book is a fundamental belief in universal human dignity." (Financial Times)

"For anyone who finds themselves confused or bemused by the 'race debate', and perhaps even more so for those who know exactly where they stand, Strange Fruit, Kenan Malik's excellent new book, is essential reading. Malik is one of the most interesting and perceptive voices operating in the disputed territory where science, culture and politics meet. A stalwart defender of free speech, he is a formidable enemy of fuzzy or wishful thinking." Andrew Anthony (The Observer)

"Kenan Malik’s gloriously sharp and combative new book, Strange Fruit, cuts through the cant and confusion that so often surrounds this issue." (Culture Wars - On-line reviews for Institute of Ideas)

"Kenan's lucid polemic provides a fascinating history of changing interpretations of the idea of race." (The Sunday Telegraph)

"Malik is anything but lazy, and weaves politics, science and history into a thoughtful and considered argument" (BBC Focus)

"Kenan Malik's argument will probably not end the race debate just yet, but that will not be for want of eloquence or cogency: far from it" A.C. Grayling (Literary Review)

"Three cheers for Malik's rationalism" (New Scientist)

Review

"Strange Fruit:Why Both Sides Are Wrong in the Race Debate has ignited a firestorm of controversy within the scientific community...Malik's extended argument for recognizing the complexity of racial identification is well worth reading for the clarity and insight he brings to the discussion."
