How Racism Came to Britain

The third book in a series that explains how racism came to Britain. It is highly readable, serious – yet entertaining – and is especially suitable for young people. It examines the origins of racism in slavery and colonialism and shows how it affects black people in every aspect of their lives in Britain today – in immigration control, employment, housing, education, policing and law enforcement, and the media.
