Synopsis

Racial identity has been central to twentieth-century Western imagination. Yet, argues Frank Furedi, advocates of racial identity have long felt uncomfortable with the racialised global order they created.*BR**BR*In The Silent War, Frank Furedi provides a radical exploration of the origins of the Anglo-American race relations industry, arguing that its emergence was driven by a conservative impulse of damage limitation; white racial fears and the internal crisis of confidence of the Anglo-American elites helping to transform racial thinking into a defensive philosophy of race relations. Furedi reveals how this shift in the conceptualisation of race is reflected in the management of international relations and demonstrates how, by the 1940s, Western powers were reluctant to openly use the discourse of race in international affairs. *BR**BR*The Silent War examines the extent of the silent race agenda in the postwar era and helps explain why North-South affairs continue to be influenced by the issue of race.

Frank Furedi is Reader in Sociology at the University of Kent at Canterbury. He has written widely on history, sociology and politics and is the author of The Silent War: Imperialism and the Changing Perception of Race, The New Ideology of Imperialism: Renewing the Moral Imperative and Mythical Past and Elusive Future: History and Society in an Anxious Age, all published by Pluto Press.
