The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age is finally ready. My co-author, Gavan and I went to pick it up and meet the delightful Zed Books editors at their offices in London last week. Here I am checking it out. The book will be officially out next week and a blog to accompany it ready soon. We welcome any reviews, friendly or otherwise; in fact, we’re ready, if anyone – Christian Joppke, Christopher Caldwell, etc. – wants a fight!
The preface to the book has been written by the entirely awesome Gary Younge with kind endorsements from Sara Ahmed, David Theo Goldberg and Howard Winant amongst others. Here’s what Winant has to say:
‘Lentin and Titley’s fierce critique provides a much-needed critical analysis of multiculturalism’s ineffectuality in opposing the racism rising in Europe today. The smiling rhetoric of tolerance, we learn here, is still produced by sharp white teeth. Highly recommended!’
