MEDIA REVIEWS

"Eurocentrism, Racism and Knowledge is a timely contribution to this debate. It brings together international scholars and political activists to reflect on Eurocentrism - its premise and contestations - in Europe and the Americas. ... the volume will certainly attract interest within and beyond academia precisely because there is an attempt in the volume at a simultaneous critique of Eurocentrism and certain postcolonial approaches." (Sandrine Bertaux, Ethnic and Racial Studies, May, 2016)

"The contributors to this edited volume are internationally renowned scholars who have published widely on sociology, race, education and epistemology and have made valuable contributions to the production of knowledge in areas related to the theme of the book. ... This book makes an important contribution to knowledge, by adding valuable inputs on the still relatively small literature in the field of the Epistemeologies of the South ... by bringing innovative and `alternative' analysis." (Boaventura Monjane, Sociology, Vol. 51 (1), February, 2016)
