Is Britain becoming a more racist society? Arun Kundnani looks behind the media hysteria to show how thirty years of cohesive race relations are being overturned by irresponsible 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 the multicultural consensus of the 1980's has given way to outright racism. There has been a sharp increase in attacks on Muslims and people of Arab or Asian descent and communities are more divided than ever. Yet the government presses ahead with foreign policy that is widely construed as racist, and relations between the police and communities have reached a new low. 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. It will be of interest to anyone who is appalled by the current state of race relations in Britain and it should be required reading for all policy-makers.
