Editorial Reviews


'Before you can solve a problem you have to understand it. Arun Kundnani not only understands the roots and ramifications of contemporary racism but explains it clearly, linking the local, the global, the political and the cultural. An incisive book at a decisive moment.' Gary Younge'The End of Tolerance is an illuminating analysis of the historic development of British racism, its empire and how this has evolved into the current conflicting and confused debates about the demonisation of immigrants, asylum-seekers, Muslims, the war on terror, segration, assimilation, multi-culturalism and Britishness. This is an essential resource for anyone wanting to understand these issues and to make any rational sense of the government's "integration and cohesion" project as well as our present legacy of "Britishness, universalism and social exclusion".'Herman Ouseley, former Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality'Arun Kundnani expertly dismantles the racisminforming much of current political discourse on asylum, immigration and multiculturalism. This book is a timely and important contribution to the struggle against racismthat both new anti-racist activists and veterans alike will benefit from reading.'Councillor Salma Yaqoob, Vice-Chair of Respect'Kundnani guides us through the history and origins of the nebulous forms of today's "new" racism, placing economic and political exploitation back at the heart of the issue. An invaluable book for confusing times.' John Pandit, member of Asian Dub Foundation 'Cutting through the media-hyped public hysteria on issues around multiculturalism Kundnani has produced a highly accessible and valuable historical analysis of racism shaping contemporary policy-making.' Ruhul Tarafder, 1990 Trust
