Racism after “Race” Relations
Robert Miles examines the concept of racism in light of both the problematic status of the term “race” as well as the troubling link between racism, migration and nationalism in the European community–especially at a time when it is seeking to renegotiate its position in the capitalist world. The book’s uniqueness lies in its critique of the assumption that only black people can be the victims of racism. Miles, one of the main authorities in the field and author of “Racism,” argues instead that a number of interior racisms have existed in Europe for some time, affecting people from various populations. “Racism After “Race” Relations” is also unique in its reconsideration of the status of such concepts as “race” and “race relations.”
Discusses the shifting definitions of racism and challenges the common conception that racism is experienced exclusively by black people. The book aims to occupy the centre of debate on the sociology of racism and ethnic studies.
