This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where well no longer need such a book. Essential * Marlon James, author of Man Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings * One of the most important books of 2017 -- Nikesh Shukla, editor of 'The Good Immigrant' A book that's set to blow apart the understanding of race relations in this country * Stylist * An incisive and uncompromising commentator on the iniquities of oppression ... Comprehensive and journalistic, the book leaves a devastating trail of case histories, statistical and anecdotal evidence, personal stories and opinion about the manifestation of overt and covert racism ... Eddo-Lodge is a gifted writer, with a talent for bringing together debates around race, gender and class in a timely and accessible way * Times Literary Supplement * Daring, interrogatory, illuminating. A forensic dissection of race in the UK from one of the country's most critical young thinkers. Reni's penetrative voice is like a punch to the jugular. Read it, then tell everyone you know -- Irenosen Okojie, author of 'Butterfly Fish' Ive never been so excited about a book. Thank God somebody finally wrote it Blistering Absolutely vital writing from one of the most exciting voices in British politics. A stunningly important debut Fellow white people: Its our responsibility as to read this book This book is essential reading for anyone even remotely interested in living in a fairer, kinder and more equal world -- Paris Lees Its deep, it's important and I suggest taking a deep breath, delving in and I promise you will come up for air woke and better equipped to understand the underlying issues of race in our society -- Sharmaine Lovegrove * ELLE * A riveting deep-dive into the history and communication of race in Britain. From white-washing to intersectional feminism, it is an eviscerating and hugely educational read This book is destined to become cult * Red * A wake-up call to a nation in denial about the structural and institutional racisms occurring in our homes, offices and communities * Observer * Laying bare the mechanisms by which we internalise the assumptions, false narratives and skewed perceptions that perpetuate racism, Eddo-Lodge enables readers of every ethnicity to look at life with clearer eyes. A powerful, compelling and urgent read * Ann Morgan, author of A Year of Reading the World * A strong assessment of our current conversations and the beginnings of a new framework for grappling with racism * Emerald Street * A seething take-down of commonly held attitudes towards race and racism in the UK and beyond ... Entirely essential Eddo-Lodge reveals why anti-racist work should be a universal objective, even if racism isnt a universal concern. The book is ultimately a defiance against the silencing of people of colour * The List * Eddo-Lodge is digesting history for those white readers who have had their ears and eyes shut to the violence in Britains past An important shift that undermines the idea that racism is the BAME communitys burden to carry. The liberation that this book offers is in the reversal of responsibilities * Arifa Akbar, Financial Times * Eddo-Lodge accurately takes the temperature of racial discussions in the UK. In seven crisp essays, she takes white British people to task for failing to accept that racism is a white problem Shes strong on the pervasive racial marginalisation of black people * Guardian * Thought-provoking (and deeply uncomfortable) ... What Eddo-Lodge does is to force her readers to confront their own complicity Her books is a call to action ... What makes the book radical is the way it shifts the burden of ending racism on to white people * Sunday Herald * Searing A fresh perspective, offering an Anglocentric alternative to the recent status-quo-challenging successes of Get Out a
