Rethinking Interventions in Racism

by Reena Bhavnani - £18.99  Trentham Books (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781858562520 | ISBN 10: 185856252x

This book throws new light on racism - the attitudes that underlie it, its causes and manifestations. It is based on the findings of the Stephen Lawrence murder inquiry, with particular emphasis on education and training. The resulting Macpherson report asks society to rethink racism and the strategies for combating it.
Reena Bhavnani has carried out new research which points the way forward to realising this thinking. She analyses the legal inquiry in detail and interviews some key figures involved. She examines the police culture and the history of training on racial issues and contextualises this in a clear picture of what such training needs to achieve.
The recommendations the author draws from this analyses will be of immense value to all those working to try to eradicate racism in our society. Copublished with the Commission for Racial Equality.
