The book traces the legacy of racism across three continents, from its origins to the present day. With a wide-ranging yet closely-argued style, it brings a sophisticated neo-Marxist analysis to bear on controversial political issues.
 
Mike Cole tackles three countries in-depth: the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. In the United Kingdom, he focuses on the effects of colonialism as well as looking at non-colour-coded racism, such as anti-Gipsy, Roma, and Traveller racism and xeno-racism directed at Eastern Europeans. Turning to the United States, Cole charts the dual legacies of indigenous genocide and slavery, as well as exploring anti-Latina/o and anti-Asian racism. Finally, in Australia, he interrogates the idea of "Terra Nullius" and its ongoing impact on the indigenous peoples, as well as other forms of racism, such as that experienced by South Sea Islanders, anti-Asian racism, and that which targets migrants. The Pauline Hanson phenomenon is also addressed. Islamophobia, antisemitism and anti-Irish racism are also dealt with in the book, as is that aimed at asylum-seekers.
 
Cole demonstrates that racism is both endemic and multifaceted. This book will undoubtedly establish itself as required reading for students and other critical readers looking for a comprehensive, critical overview of the study of racism in Anglophone countries.

About the Author:

Mike Cole is professor of education at the University of East London and emeritus research professor in education and equality at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln.

Review:

"Cole combines critical race theory with neo-Marxism to argue that racism—both its intentional and unintentional manifestations—cannot be understood in any geographic space without a consideration of capitalist systems of power on a national and international level.  With the UK, the US, and Australia as his focal points, he examines the various forms of racism and racialization that continue to target various groups in these Anglophone societies, which he places within the historical context of colonialism, genocide, and enslavement. Cole rejects the concept of white supremacy because of what he argues is its ineffectiveness in explaining the practice of racism among non-white groups; the emergence of a “new hybridist racism” that encompasses Islamophobia and hostility towards asylum seekers; and the non-color-coded racism that persists in places like the UK as evidenced in the treatment of migrant laborers from eastern Europe and in the longstanding racialization of Jews, Irish, and Roma peoples. Cole suggests that racialized capitalism, rather than white supremacy, is a more effective tool of analysis and a more effective device for unifying all workers to end oppression. Recommended." (Choice)

“Mike Cole reminds us of the histories of racism across America, Australia and the UK, at the same time urging us to re-engage with arguments about the central role of capitalism in perpetuating the most vicious of inequalities. This is an important reminder of the need to take a long view as we renew our shared struggle against the racism still scarring human lives across the globe." (Gargi Bhattacharyya, author of Tales Of Dark Skinned Women and Dangerous Brown Men)
