Annotations on Race, Colonialism, Islamophobia, Islam and Palestine

Hatem Bazian | Ethnic Studies | Amrit Publishers, 2017

The veneer of post-racial America, the insistence on color blindness across Europe, the callous treatment of refugees and the brutalities inflicted on Muslims and Islam, all derive from lies perpetrated by the powerful (and the powerless) to perpetuate white supremacy. Dr. Hatem Bazian’s book reveals the truth – that the twisted roots of institutional racism, religious animosity and western arrogance are planted deeply in the fertile soil of the West; their legacies continue to shape our lives in the 21st century. Dr. Bazian describes their manifestations, their consequences and the sustained efforts to resist them, and maintain human dignity. This is a powerful set of essays, in vivid and compelling terms, that speaks to the most urgent matters of the 21st century.”– Stephen Small, Professor of African American Studies, UC Berkeley
