Show Summary Details

Preview

This book makes a contribution to the discussion on the crisis of anti-racism and the need to rethink anti-racism. The author argues that rethinking anti-racism necessitates clearing up some important confusions regarding racism and anti-racism. The author argues that capitalism creates the conditions for both racism and anti-racism. The author argues that anti-racism and racism express the contradiction between the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity on the one hand and the reality of restrictions on human freedom, inequality and ‘racial’ division on the other. The book illustrates the argument through an in depth analysis of racisms (and anti-racisms) in Northern Ireland. The book places the development of anti-racism in the region in the wider context of the development of anti-racism globally and in the UK. The author argues that the failure to include Northern Ireland in broader discussions about racisms in the UK has had a detrimental impact on emancipatory anti-racism in the UK. The author argues that rethinking anti-racism needs to involve an examination of the whole of the UK, not just the UK minus Northern Ireland.
