Description

Kalbir Shukra traces the course of black and anti-racist politics in Britain since the 1940s, offering a valuable historical perspective on black political organisation.

Shukra assesses the aspirations and strategies of Asian and African-Caribbeans who organised against racism in the 1960s and 1970s. She also traces the tensions between ethnic and black political strategists and examines the debates around the boundaries of 'blackness'.

Review quote

'Shukra's account, with its deliberately combative tone and forthright adherence to an unfashionably militant political stance, should certainly stimulate debate' -- Contemporary British History 'Raises fundamental questions about the nature of the New Labour agenda for Britain's black communities, and crucially, for different strata of those communities' -- SAGE Race Relations
