Racism Postcolonialism Europe
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
This multidisciplinary collection examines postcolonial criticism and defines new categories of racism: those of false respect, reaction, and surveillance. Racism Postcolonialism Europe argues that all these forms of postcolonial racism occur under the guise of representing the interests of the European people— which is a very different entity than the European population as a whole. This anthology—which includes contributions from distinguished scholars such as Griselda Pollock, Michel Wieviorka, and Philomena Essed—will be required reading for scholars and students of race, postcolonial studies, sociology, and cultural studies alike.
