Essential, lucid reading on the racism deeply ingrained in British society and its strong ties to gender and especially class — aspects that in the UK are often regarded as more worthy of examination than race. The chapter on (white) feminism is sensational.

'While the black British story is starved of oxygen, the US struggle against racism is globalised into the story of the struggle against racism that we should look to for inspiration — eclipsing the black British story so much that we convince ourselves that Britain has never had a problem with race.'
