The End of Tolerance: Racism in 21st Century Britain

by Arun Kundnani
£27.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2007)

The End of Tolerance: Racism in 21st Century Britain by Arun Kundnani 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.
 
Exacerbated by the attacks of 9/11 and 7/7, Kundnani argues that a new form of racism is emerging. 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 preceis analysis is a useful account of why racism is now thriving - and what can be done to stop it.

"Before you can solve a problem you have to understand it. Arun Kundnani not only understands the roots and ramifications of contemporary racism but explains it clearly, linking the local, the global, the political and the cultural. An incisive book at a decisive moment."
