Editorial Reviews


Liz Fekete is one of the best analysts of the complexities of racism in Europe today. In showing how racism has been profoundly impacted by Islamophobia, the War on Terror, and by a 'xeno-racism' directed at undocumented migrants and asylum seekers, A Suitable Enemy is the major work we've been waiting for. An enormously accomplished and important book -- Professor Avery Gordon, Department of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara A Suitable Enemy shows how the extreme right captured the political initiative by portraying immigrants and asylum seekers as a threat to European security, identity and prosperity ... Liz Fekete presents an important analysis that should be used by anyone concerned about the real threats to human rights and democracy today. -- Professor Stephen Castles International Migration Institute, University of Oxford Liz Fekete's work is an important and timely book. The author is addressing crucial issues helping the readers to understand how new kinds of racism, exclusion and power struggles are at work. Liz Fekete shows us how the far right discourses and policies are being more and more normalised ... She reveals the many dangers facing the European societies. -- Professor Tariq Ramadan Senior Research Fellow, Oxford St Antony's College This book deserves a slow and careful reading. Liz Fekete reaches into the unique archives of knowledge ... and provides a clear, detailed and insightful road map for those who want to navigate and understand where, how and why current executive actions are reproducing ... This work of extraordinary thoroughness and clear, passionate moral insight provides a primer of unparalleled utility. -- Gareth Peirce, civil rights lawyer
