Arun Kundnani joins us to discuss his book ‘The End of Tolerance: Racism in 21st Century Britain’.

RACISM.  TERRORISM.  IMMIGRATION.  SOCIAL SEGREGATION.  Is this the new age of Britain or just media hysteria playing upon our fears and encouraging racism?  Arun Kundnani a leading commentator on racism, looks behind government policies and malevolent press campaigns in his book ‘The End of Tolerance: Racism in 21st Century Britain’ and analyses why racism is now thriving and explains what can be done to stop it.


Reviews:

Herman Ouseley, former Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality
‘An illuminating analysis of the historic development of British racism, and how this has evolved into the current debates about the demonization of immigrants, asylum-seekers, Muslims, the war on terror, segregation, assimilation, multi-culturalism and Britishness.’

John Pandit, Asia Dub Foundation
‘Kudnani guides us through the history and origins of the nebulous forms of today’s ‘new’ racism’.
