Abstract

Structural and institutionalised racism is still present in Britain and Europe, a factor that social work education and training has been slow to acknowledge. In this recent book, Michael Lavalette and Laura Penketh aim to show that racism towards Britain’s ethnic minority groups has undergone a process of change. The authors examine contemporary anti-racism and racism towards Eastern European migrants, Roma people and asylum seekers and the realities of racism and their implications for current practice. Harriet Deacon finds that the volume provides a useful collection of articles that contribute to what will hopefully be a growing debate within British society about the relationship between racism and social marginalisation, and how to address both of these problems.
