This book explores the global development of contemporary racism and uncovers the complex manifestations and causes of racism. It critically draws upon and analyses the global economic and the legislative frameworks relating to racism. The boundaries of racism continue to shift and the authors critically analyse new developments in racism and unpack the points of intersection between the new and the old racisms. The impacts of factors such as fear, politics, the use of the "race card", and nationalism are also explored.

The book examines the changing dynamics of racism, manifesting itself in different spatial, economic and social situations but demonstrating similarities and differences in a globalized world. In light of these complexities, the book examines the challenges of theorizing, identifying, and challenging racism, as well as the challenges of developing an anti-racist future.
