Empire’s Endgame: Racism and the British State
By Gargi Bhattacharyya, Adam Elliott-Cooper, Sita Balani, Kerem Nisancioglu, Kojo Koram, Dalia Gebrial, Nadine El-Enany and Luke de Noronha
Co-authors Gargi Bhattacharyya et al. highlight how the lens of racism and the politics of race offer the sharpest focus to explain why movements against colonial legacies and state violence coincide with rising authoritarian regimes,.
Chaired by FireWorks Series editor, Wilf Sullivan (Race Equality Officer, Trades Union Congress, London).
In this moment of profound overlapping crises, the landscape of politics and entitlement is rapidly remade. Several leading scholars powerfully intervene in debates on racial capitalism and political crisis in Britain. While the ‘hostile environment’ policy and Brexit referendum throw the centrality of race into sharp relief, discussions of racism have too often focus on individual behaviours. Bringing to the fore broad political and economic contexts, the authors trace ways in which empire’s legacies have been reshaped by global capitalism, the digital environment and instability in the nation-state. Engaging with Black Lives Matter and Rhodes Must Fall movements, Empire’s Endgame offers an original perspective on race, media, the state and criminalisation, and a political vision that includes — rather than expels — in the face of crisis.
This is the fourth in the Pluto Press FireWorks series.
