PROSPERO’S RETURN Historical Essays on Race, Culture and British Society

Product no.: HP028

Paul B. Rich

This wide-ranging collection of essays explores the nature and meaning of race and racism in British society and the nature of British and English national identity.

Using political, social and cultural sources, the author shows that many of the contemporary issues surrounding the position of Black minorities in British society have a long and complex history. Areas as diverse as anthropology, eugenics, literary history and housing are discussed.

In its rich employment of historical sources, the book shows the powerful strains of racial and national political thought in Britain. At the same time, it reveals the existence of an alternative liberal and radical tradition which can be drawn upon in the construction of alternative models of national identity which include rather than marginalize minorities.
