This book reports on leading edge research on racism in higher education - a matter that has received far less attention in western societies than racism in schools. The book examines the evidence of institutional racism in higher education and prepares for the forthcoming web-based guide to assist institutional change.

The chapters here are drawn from the presentations by leading social science researchers in the field at a conference at the University of Leeds in 2002. The conference made it possible to assess the extent and nature of racism in higher education institutions today, and the structural constraints on change. There are theoretical and philosophical explorations that further understanding, and also accounts of evidence of positive new responses to these issues.

This important book is for managers, academics and teachers in Higher Education, for policy makers, professionals and academics concerned with race equality and for students of the social sciences.

Review quote

"The book is written in phases that move the reader from 'here is the problem' to 'here are some solutions' to subjugate racism .the book can be used as a reference and serve as a guide for academic advisors examining institutional policies and procedures. I frequently recommend this book to academic advisors and professionals in the domain of Higher Education."
