The book traces the legacy of racism across three continents, from its origins to the present day, bringing a sophisticated neo-Marxist analysis to bear on a muti-faceted and endemic topic.

Mike Cole takes us through the racial histories of the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. In the UK, he focuses on the effects of colonialism, anti-Gipsy, Roma and Traveller and xeno-racism. Turning to the United States, he charts the legacies of indigenous genocide and slavery, as well as exploring anti-Latina/o racism. Finally, in Australia, he interrogates the idea of 'Terra Nullius' and its ongoing impact on the indigenous peoples, as well as racism experienced by South Sea Islanders and Asians.

International forms are also covered, including Islamophobia, antisemitism and anti-Irish racism.

'[An] interesting, clear, and thoughtful piece of scholarship' -- Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
'It is a testimony to Cole's compendious knowledge of racism that this book is able to provide such an encyclopaedic account of its complex entanglements with capitalism' -- Race & Class
