“Kundnani icily relates the Kafkaesque absurdities of rejected asylum cases, as well as case studies of biased policing and grossly inflammatory statements by politicians. His sarcasm is finely honed.” – Guardian
Is Britain becoming a more racist society? Arun Kundnani looks behind the media hysteria to show how multicultural Britain is under attack by government policies and vitriolic press campaigns that play upon fear and encourage racism.
A new form of racism is emerging, exacerbated by the attacks of 9/11 and 7/7. It is based on a systematic failure to understand the causes of forced migration, global terrorism and social segregation. The result is a climate of hatred, especially against Muslims and asylum seekers, and the erosion of human rights. Communities are more divided than ever. Yet the government presses ahead with flawed policies and anti-terrorist legislation that creates further resentment, alienation and criminalisation.
What can be done? This timely and precise analysis is a useful account of why racism is now thriving – and what can be done to stop it.
Arun Kundnani is a leading commentator on racism, immigration and multiculturalism.
Foreword by A. Sivanandan, director of the Institute of Race Relations.
