Robbie Shilliam is Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. His endorsement of Why Race Still Matters means a lot to me because he is one of the intellectuals writing on race who has bridged the European, the US and the Pacific experience in his writing, modelling a truly transnational and decolonial approach to race critical thought.
Mainstream intellectual and public discourse fundamentally lacks literacy in race. Lentin’s book provides this literacy with rigour , accessibility, and honesty. Above all, Lentin explains why race still matters in sociologically and geopolitically expansive ways.
