A collection of Sivanandan's work charting the history of post war black struggles against British racism

Sivanandan’s influence extends well beyond the limits of formal acknowledgement. His ideas and writings have been consistently quoted, copied and plagiarised. He was both and intellectual and an activist, his work has made a profound impact on the political life of Britain from the 1970s to the 2010s.

This collection of his writings ranges widely – over the history of black struggles against British racism from the 1940s to the uprisings of Brixton and Toxleth in 1981: the Black Panthers: immigration and race policies of British governments: and ‘the liberation of the black intellectual’, including essays on individuals such as James Baldwin, Angela Davis and Paul Robeson.

A. Sivanandan (1928-2018) is regarded as one of the leading Black political thinkers in the UK. He was Director Emeritus of the Institute of Race Relations and the editor of the revered journal Race and Class. He is the author of countless classics, including Catching History on the Wing (Pluto, 2008) and A Different Hunger (Pluto, 1991). He contributed the foreword to A Suitable Enemy (Pluto, 2009).
