"An uncompromising account of the roots of racism today."--Kimberle Crenshaw
"Kehinde is a crucial voice, walking in a proud tradition of Black radical criticism and action."--Akala
"Kehinde is a leader and a teacher who puts the Black Lives Matter movement into its historical and global context, and explains persuasively how it could shape our future. If you want to go beyond gestures and slogans and to the truth, this is the book to get you there."--Russell Brand
"Professor Andrews takes the reader on a journey, and it isn't a comfortable one. Pick up this book and read it carefully. Once that is done, readers will be surely challenged, both in thinking and action."--Dawn Butler, Labour MP
"This book is a provocation. As Kehinde Andrews argues, we are still living this imperial nightmare, still reaping the consequences of contemporary racialized violence and exploitation. The lesson: no freedom under racism, no future under capitalism, no justice without decolonization."--Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
"This book is a radical, necessary indictment of the racist structures that produced the current anti-Black world order. Historically rigorous and deeply researched. . . . Andrews's clear-eyed analysis insists upon the revolutionary acts of freedom we will need to break out of these systems of violence."--Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist
"Provide[s] readers with a solid grounding in the 500-year history of racial capitalism - the enduring significance of the genocide of Native Americans, the transatlantic slave trade and European colonialism - as he works, convincingly, to reveal the 'colonial logic and neocolonialism' still at play in the workings of contemporary global institutions such as the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, the WTO."
--The Guardian
"Skillfully interweaving economics, politics, and history to debunk popular narratives of social progress, this searing takedown hits home."--Publishers Weekly
