New Right Discourse on Race and Sexuality: Britain, 1968-1990
The first book in the Cultural Margins series is a ground-breaking study of racism and homophobia in British politics. Anna Marie Smith analyzes two key moments in New Right discourse: the speeches of Enoch Powell on black immigration (1968-72) and the legislative campaign of the late 1980s to prohibit the promotion of homosexuality. She challenges the silence on issues of race and sexuality in previous studies of Thatcherism and the New Right, and offers a devastating critique of racism and homophobia in late-twentieth-century Britain.
