Reviewed by Eric Louw

Macan Ghaill has produced a useful book for opening up a debate about how we study and understand racism. The book provides a comprehensive examination of those theories of racism that have been influential in Britain. It also provides an excellent critical overview of actual studies of racism within the United Kingdom.
