        Paul Gilroy

        ISBN 9780231134552

      1. Arguing for an understanding of the ongoing influence of colonialism, imperialism, and racism on contemporary life today, Gilroy presents a perhaps surprising defense of multiculturalism in light of the post-9/11 ‘politics of security’ and the resurgent militarism of the West. See in particular Cosmopolitanism Contested and The Negative Dialectics of Conviviality.
