Race to the Top

Structural Racism and How to Fight it

«

‘In Britain, talent has always lost out to privilege. Nazir Afzal’s compelling book challenges our country’s dated conception of meritocracy and teaches us how we can all win in the fight for equality.’ David Lammy MP

‘A powerful account of everyday racisms and why, if we are serious about a socially just society – the time for change must be now.’ Kalwant Bhopal, author of White Privilege: The myth of a post-racial society

‘Nazir Afzal highlights the gauntlet of racism ethnic minorities still face as they seek to make it to the top. Token improvement doesn't mean that wider society doesn't have work to do in becoming genuinely equal and fair.’ Angela Saini, author of Superior: The Return of Race Science

'A tour de force, containing engaging personal accounts alongside a thorough analysis of the road blocks and barriers that are endured by countless Black, Asian and other minority ethnic Britons. He also gives us all hope that we can change for the better.’ Baroness Louise Casey DBE CB

'This book shows us a clear-eyed picture of the present and offers a toolkit for the future, and in doing so offers hope and optimism. I found the writing clear, refreshing and emotional at times because it captures what so many of minority ethnic Brits have experienced in our professional lives. We have to take action now, urgently.' Pragya Agarwal, author of Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias

‘A must-read, offering informed solutions to the key problems of our time. The insights contained in the excellent book provide clues for resolution, or at least for a new level of understanding.’ Lord Alex Carlile CBE, QC

‘The authentic face of British Justice.’ The New York Times

‘Champion of the ignored.’ The Sunday Times

‘An inspiring figure, forensically intelligent.’ The Times

‘Afzal is not one to shy away from the failures of the state.’ New Statesman
