Foyles Nonfiction Book of the Year Blackwell''s Nonfiction Book of the Year Named One of the Best Books of 2017 by: NPR The Guardian The Observer The Brooklyn Rail Cultured Vultures "This is a book that was begging to be written. This is the kind of book that demands a future where we''ll no longer need such a book. Essential." - Marlon James, author of Man Booker Prize-winning A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS"This political, accessible and uncompromising book has got people talking about race and racism in Britain." - Guardian, "Books of the Year" "Searing ? A fresh perspective, offering an Anglocentric alternative to the recent status-quo-challenging successes of Get Out and Dear White People . This book''s probing analysis and sharp wit certainly make us pray she will continue talking to white people about race." - Harper''s Bazaar "A clear and convincing dissection of racism and the white denial that perpetuates it." - Our Best Adult Books of 2017 - Nonfiction, starred review, Shelf Awareness "A plainspoken, hard-hitting take on mainstream British society''s avoidance of race and the complexities and manifestations of racism . . . Eddo-Lodge''s crisp prose and impassioned voice implore white Britain to look beyond obvious racism to acknowledge the more opaque existence of structural racism . . . With this thoughtful and direct book, Eddo-Lodge stokes the very conversation that the title rejects." - Publishers Weekly "In her probing and personal narrative, Eddo-Lodge offers fresh insight into the way all racism is ultimately a ''white problem'' that must be addressed by commitment to action, no matter how small . . . A sharp, compelling, and impassioned book." - Kirkus Reviews "The provocative title is hard to ignore, and so is the book''s cover. Seen from afar, it appears to be called Why I''m No Longer Talking About Race, which is intriguing enough on its own. You have to look closer to see To White People hiding underneath it in debossed letters. It''s a striking visual representation of white people''s blindness to everyday, structural racism . . . It''s that boldness, that straight talk which makes this book memorable. Eddo-Lodge pushes readers to recognize that racism is a systemic problem that needs to be tackled by those who run the system." - NPR.org "You don''t have to live in the U.K. to recognize the issues of white privilege, class, feminism and structural racism that [Eddo-Lodge] explores in this essential book." - Silvia Vinas, NPR "Why I''m No Longer Talking to White People about Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge is a timely and sparky discussion about a vital subject." - Times Literary Supplement, "Books of the Year" "Her work, which began as a silent scream against white complicity to racism, has shifted the conversation in the U.K. . . . Though she may not be talking to white people about race, she has gotten a lot of people to listen." - Time Magazine "Reni Eddo-Lodge is that rarest of delights - a young, working-class black woman from Tottenham with a voice in public life ? This book is a real eye-opener when it comes to Britain''s hidden history of discrimination ? A book like this matters now." - Refinery29 "Eddo-Lodge explores the nuanced ways in which racial prejudice continues and is ignored." - Vogue "A must-read that expertly reflects the challenges of addressing structural racism." - starred review, Library Journal "A book that''s set to blow apart the understanding of race relations in this country." - Stylist "I found Why I''m No Longer Talking to White People about Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge timely and resonant. The author''s passages on intersectionality are particularly poignant. It''s a powerful and important read, relevant and accessible whatever your race." - Observer, "Books of the Year" "Thought-provoking (and deeply uncomfortable) ? What Eddo-Lodge does is to force her readers to confront their own complicity ? Her books is a call to action ? What makes the book radical is the way it shifts the burden of ending racism on to white people." - Sunday Herald "Offering extraordinary and articulate insights into contemporary race relations, "Why I''m No Longer Talking to White People About Race" is impressively informative, exceptionally well written, organized and presented, and an essential, core addition to both community and academic library Contemporary Social Issues in general, and Race Relations supplemental studies lists in particular." - Midwest Book Review "Why I''m No Longer Talking To White People About Race . . . look[s] at racial dynamics in the UK, and does so with intelligence and poignance. Eddo-Lodge''s journalism background makes the book the perfect mixture of fact and opinion, resulting in a book that will probably teach you a lot about Britain''s racist history." - Cultured Vultures, "10 Best Books of 2017" "Eddo-Lodge is digesting history for those white readers who have had their ears and eyes shut to the violence in Britain''s past ? An important shift that undermines the idea that racism is the BAME community''s burden to carry. The liberation that this book offers is in the reversal of responsibilities." - Arifa Akbar, Financial Times "It''s deep, it''s important and I suggest taking a deep breath, delving in and I promise you will come up for air woke and better equipped to understand the underlying issues of race in our society." - Sharmaine Lovegrove, ELLE "Daring, interrogatory, illuminating. A forensic dissection of race in the UK from one of the country''s most critical young thinkers. Reni''s penetrative voice is like a punch to the jugular. Read it, then tell everyone you know." - Irenosen Okojie, author of BUTTERFLY FISH"One of the most important books of 2017." - Nikesh Shukla, editor of THE GOOD IMMIGRANT"I''ve never been so excited about a book. Thank God somebody finally wrote it ? Blistering ? Absolutely vital writing from one of the most exciting voices in British politics. A stunningly important debut ? Fellow white people: It''s our responsibility as to read this book ? This book is essential reading for anyone even remotely interested in living in a fairer, kinder and more equal world." - Paris Lees"Laying bare the mechanisms by which we internalise the assumptions, false narratives and skewed perceptions that perpetuate racism, Eddo-Lodge enables readers of every ethnicity to look at life with clearer eyes.

• Description : An urgent collection of essays by first and second-generation immigrants, exploring what it's like to be othered in an increasingly divided America. From Trump's proposed border wall and travel ban to the marching of White Supremacists in Charlottesville, America is consumed by tensions over immigration and the question of which bodies are welcome. In this much-anticipated follow-up to the bestselling UK edition, hailed by Zadie Smith as "lively and vital," editors Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman hand the microphone to an incredible range of writers whose humanity and right to be here is under attack. Chigozie Obioma unpacks an Igbo proverb that helped him navigate his journey to America from Nigeria. Jenny Zhang analyzes cultural appropriation in 90s fashion, recalling her own pain and confusion as a teenager trying to fit in. Fatimah Asghar describes the flood of memory and emotion triggered by an encounter with an Uber driver from Kashmir. Alexander Chee writes of a visit to Korea that changed his relationship to his heritage. These writers, and the many others in this singular collection, share powerful personal stories of living between cultures and languages while struggling to figure out who they are and where they belong. By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, troubling and uplifting, the essays in The Good Immigrant come together to create a provocative, conversation-sparking, multivocal portrait of America now.

• Description : From a powerful new voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female in middle-class white America. Austin Channing Brown's first encounter with a racialized America came at age 7, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, Austin writes, "I had to learn what it means to love blackness," a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America's racial divide as a writer, speaker and expert who helps organizations practice genuine inclusion. In a time when nearly all institutions (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claim to value "diversity" in their mission statements, I'm Still Here is a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice, in stories that bear witness to the complexity of America's social fabric--from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations. For readers who have engaged with America's legacy on race through the writing of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michael Eric Dyson, I'm Still Here is an illuminating look at how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting the reader to confront apathy, recognize God's ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness--if we let it--can save us all.

• Description : Around the world, populist movements are gaining traction among the white working class. Meanwhile, members of the professional elite—journalists, managers, and establishment politicians—are on the outside looking in, left to argue over the reasons. In White Working Class, Joan C. Williams, described as having “something approaching rock star status” by the New York Times, explains why so much of the elite’s analysis of the white working class is misguided, rooted in class cluelessness. Williams explains that many people have conflated “working class” with “poor”—but the working class is, in fact, the elusive, purportedly disappearing middle class. They often resent the poor and the professionals alike. But they don’t resent the truly rich, nor are they particularly bothered by income inequality. Their dream is not to join the upper middle class, with its different culture, but to stay true to their own values in their own communities—just with more money. While white working-class motivations are often dismissed as racist or xenophobic, Williams shows that they have their own class consciousness. White Working Class is a blunt, bracing narrative that sketches a nuanced portrait of millions of people who have proven to be a potent political force. For anyone stunned by the rise of populist, nationalist movements, wondering why so many would seemingly vote against their own economic interests, or simply feeling like a stranger in their own country, White Working Class will be a convincing primer on how to connect with a crucial set of workers—and voters.
