How racist is society today? How have the patterns of discrimination and disadvantage changed over the past twenty years? This key text explores the nature and extent of racial discrimination, and the successes and failures of equal opportunities programmes. Incisive analyses focus upon the operation of institutional racism in immigration law, housing, social work, employment training and the criminal justice system. They explore changes over time and examine the interwoven strands of 'race', class and gender that form the pattern of disadvantage. This provides a context for a critical discussion of the formulation, implementation and outcomes of equal opportunities policies in the local state and the private sector. The authors rigorously investigate both 'liberal' and 'radical' approaches to equal opportunities in the area of 'race'. They analyze the political and ideological contentions that influence the ways in which issues are defined and support is mobilized. They also highlight the shortcomings of current legislation. A successful balance of important recent articles and substantial contributions specially written for this text, Racism and Antiracism will be essential reading for teachers, students and all those concerned with discrimination and with antiracist policy. Although rooted in the British experience, it addresses issues and problems common to many Western societies. An Open University Reader for the course 'Race', Education and Society.

About the Author:

Peter Braham lectured in sociology at the Open University for many years. He made major contributions to a number of Open University courses: Patterns of Inequality; Ethnic Minorities and Community Relations; Mass Communication and Society; An Introduction to Sociology; ′Race′, Education and Society; Understanding Modern Societies; Implementing New Technologies; An Introduction to Information Technology; Culture, Media and Identities; Studying Family and Community History: 19th and 20th Centuries; and Sociology and Society.

He co-edited Discrimination and Disadvantage in Employment: the Experience of Black Workers [1981]; Media, Knowledge and Power [1986]; Racism and Antiracism [1992]; Political and Economic Forms of Modernity [1992]; Social Differences and Divisions [2002]; Dictionary of Race, Ethnicity and Culture [2003]. His main research interests have been in migration and settlement, child immigration and family reunification, and he has been the UK partner on several international research projects in these areas.

Review:

`A sensitive and reflective account of the social disadvantage of racialised minorities and how change in Britain is relatively slow to come about in this area... a good synthesis of the many strands which constitute dimensions of racism and anti-racism and policies towards them. Particularly good use is made of concrete examples of disadvantage experienced by black and Asian women, especially the elderly, and their vulnerability is highlighted in considerable detail... a good source book. It updates a range of issues relating to racism and the experience of ethnic minorities in Britain′ - British Educational Research Journal

It analyzes the relationship between racial inequalities and other types of social division, such as those based on class and gender, and the relationship between racial inequalities in education and other areas of social life, especially employment and social welfare. It introduces debates about cultural identity and difference and discusses the formation of the dominant white culture.Individual volumes in the series question commonsense and essentialist notions of race; provide a critical survey of existing explanations of racial differentiation; set race in a historical and social context and show how the category has been constructed through economic, political and cultural practices; highlight the role of educational policies and practices in this process; and provide a critical framework for the evaluation of existing initiatives in the areas of multiculturalism, antiracism and equal opportunties. Although Asian and Afro-Caribbean minority communities are the main point of reference, comparisons are made to the position of other ethnic minorities. Seller Inventory # AAX9780803985827
