'Rigorous, impassioned and urgent' - Ash Sarkar



We are in a moment of profound overlapping crises. The landscape of politics and entitlement is being rapidly remade. As movements against colonial legacies and state violence coincide with the rise of authoritarian regimes, it is the lens of racism, and the politics of race, that offers the sharpest focus.



In Empire's Endgame, eight leading scholars make a powerful intervention in debates around racial capitalism and political crisis in Britain. While the 'hostile environment' policy and Brexit referendum have thrown the centrality of race into sharp relief, discussions of racism have too often focused on individual behaviours. Foregrounding instead the wider political and economic context, the authors trace the ways in which the legacies of empire have been reshaped by global capitalism, the digital environment and the instability of the nation-state.



Engaging with movements such as Black Lives Matter and Rhodes Must Fall, Empire's Endgame offers both an original perspective on race, media, the state and criminalisation, and a political vision that includes rather than expels in the face of crisis.

«<p>'Rigorous, impassioned and urgent, this book punctures the puffed-up nationalist swagger of our government with an incisive critique of post-imperial decline'</p>»

«<p>'A new and much-needed analysis of the confluence of race, government, and the media during these turbulent times'</p>»

«<p>'Challenges us to step outside of the tempo of the hot-take and the electoral cycle to look beyond party-political rows. As training, allyship and inclusion increasingly become the favoured response to Black Lives Matter, the book invites us to build the relationships and structures of care so necessary for a collective freedom'</p>»

«<p>'A metaphorical molotov from beyond the barricades'</p>»
