Definitive book on the roots and evolution of Black radicalism.
Published at a time when race and racism are at the forefront of political discussion on both sides of the Atlantic.
Highly readable account of a tradition that has consistently been one of the most misrepresented and misunderstood.
Eg. Includes Black feminist and LGBT perspectives, in riposte to claims that Black radical thought has been patriarchal or even misogynistic. Author is one of UK’s most respected and daring Black British political voices.
Author’s iconoclastic public assertions e.g. considerable press coverage earlier this year for stating “the enlightenment was racist” (Newsnight), his video “The West Was Built on Racism” (Guardian) has had over 9.4 million views, have furthered the debate about racism in the UK.
