"[D]escribes the history of U.S. movements to contest racism...As an introduction to the intellectual history and political theory of antiracism, Zamalins book is ideal..." ~Library Journal
"The author provides valuable historical context on the social construct of racial identity....Zamalin's vision is pragmatic with a touch of idealism. He doesn't necessarily place moral superiority on nonviolence over more militant tactics, and he recognizes that black rebellion intensifies resistance from a conservative status quo. As he insists throughout, it is not enough to believe that you are not racist; you must actively work against racism in all its institutional and insidious forms." ~Kirkus Review
"This isby farthe best introduction to the profoundly important topic of Anti-Racism." ~Gerald Horne,Author of The Apocalypse of Settler Colonialism
"Alex Zamalin provides a comprehensive account of the philosophical underpinnings and practices of anti-racism in the United States. Theoretically nuanced and politically astute, this little book offers a primer on American anti-racism past and present. A fine tool for teaching and political work." ~David Theo Goldberg,Author of Are We All Postracial Yet?
"A spirited and learned introduction to a vital topic. Antiracism combines a long historical sweep with deep consideration of what Dr. King once called the 'fierce urgency of now.' Drawing impressively on cultural as well as political sources it reminds readers of the centrality of struggles against structural inequalities, not just against ugly racist opinions, to initiatives for racial justice." ~David Roediger,Author of Seizing Freedom: Slave Emancipation and Liberty for All
