Reviews

Groundbreaking, brilliant, fearless -- David Olusoga (on Stamped from the Beginning) * Observer * A powerful, thought-provoking book that features a dizzying array of characters, deftly navigates complex intellectual terrain and draws on a wealth of evidence -- (on Stamped from the Beginning) * Literary Review * You should read it for its arguments about what racism is ... Nor should you dodge it on the basis that you knew all this already - like me, you almost certainly didn't -- David Aaronovitch (on Stamped from the Beginning) * The Times * Lucid, accessible, unyielding ... Kendi's most important insight might help rethink anti-racist activism -- Sadiah Qureshi (on Stamped from the Beginning) * New Statesman * I can't say whether Ibram X Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning will offend most white people (though I'm willing to bet it will offend some), but he damn sure names white supremacy for what it is -- Mark Anthony Neal * Guardian *


Transformative and revolutionary. Ibram Kendi is today's visionary in the enduring struggle for racial justice. How to Be An Antiracist offers us a necessary and critical way forward -- Robin DiAngelo, New York Times bestselling author of White Fragility This latest from the National Book Award-winning author is no guidebook to getting woke... Rather, it is a combination of memoir and extension of Kendi's towering Stamped From the Beginning (2016) that leads readers through a taxonomy of racist thought to anti-racist action... Never wavering...Kendi methodically examines racism through numerous lenses: power, biology, ethnicity, body, culture, and so forth... This unsparing honesty helps readers, both white and people of color, navigate this difficult intellectual territory. Not an easy read but an essential one * Kirkus (Starred Review) * [Ibram Kendi's] work through his books and the Antiracist Research and Policy Center is so vital in today's sociopolitical climate. As a society, we need to start treating antiracism as action, not emotion - and Ibram is helping us do that -- Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race Groundbreaking, brilliant, fearless -- David Olusoga (on Stamped from the Beginning) * Observer * A powerful, thought-provoking book that features a dizzying array of characters, deftly navigates complex intellectual terrain and draws on a wealth of evidence -- (on Stamped from the Beginning) * Literary Review *


Could hardly be more relevant ... it feels like a light switch being flicked on OWEN JONES Transformative and revolutionary ... offers us a necessary and critical way forward -- Robin DiAngelo, author of White Fragility Vital and hopeful ... Whether you're an institution ... or an individual in moral paralysis, dumbfounded by the febrile emotions now at large ... you are not alone; hope is on its way (Colin Grant, Observer) * Observer * Shocking and provocative ... he uses his personal story to make his arguments so skilfully that the book is both a memoir and a strident call to arms * Irish Times * An electrifying combination of ethics, history, law and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative ... an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step * The Voice * Gives us the tools to make changes in our own lives and society at large. A must-read (June Sarpong, author of Diversify) Makes clear how we all must engage in the essential soul-searching to understand our own racism and the personal action required to become antiracist (Lord Herman Ouseley, former Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality and of Kick It Out) This is no guidebook to getting woke ... Never wavering, Kendi methodically examines racism through numerous lenses: power, biology, ethnicity, body, culture, and so forth. This unsparing honesty helps readers, both white and people of colour, navigate this difficult intellectual territory. Essential * Kirkus * So vital. As a society, we need to start treating antiracism as action, not emotion - and Kendi is helping us do that (Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race) No less than a road map for social change through a remarkable, personal and deeply touching journey. If you take the business of fighting oppression seriously and want to make a difference, this is something you need to read (Leslie Thomas, QC) Groundbreaking, brilliant, fearless -- David Olusoga (on Stamped from the Beginning) * Observer * You should read it for its arguments about what racism is. Nor should you dodge it on the basis that you knew all this already - like me, you almost certainly didn't -- David Aaronovitch (on Stamped from the Beginning) * The Times * Lucid, accessible, unyielding. Kendi's most important insight might help rethink anti-racist activism -- Sadiah Qureshi (on Stamped from the Beginning) * New Statesman *
