The Empire Strikes Back: Race and Racism in 70s Britain

Front Cover

There are many reasons why issues raised by the study of races and racisms shouldbe central to the concerns of cultural studies. Yet racist ideologies and racial conflictshave been ignored, both in historical writing and in accounts of the present. Ifnothing else, this book should be taken as a signal that this marginalization cannotcontinue. It has also been conceived as a corrective to the narrowness of the Englishleft whose version of the national-popular continues to deny the role of blacks andblack struggles in the making and the remaking of the working class.
