Racial Oppression in a 'Post-Race' North America: Transformative Social Work Responses $87.00
Authors: Ransford Danso (Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanded Learning, Ontario, Canada) 
Book Description:
Race and racism are significant factors posing formidable challenges for racialized individuals and groups across North America. For social workers, the lack of enhanced understanding of how race mediates their practice impinges negatively on the provision of culturally sensitive social work services to racialized clients. This book contributes to the academic literature by presenting a critical comparative analysis of the historical and contemporary articulations of race and racism and their role in shaping the lives racialized groups in North America. Drawing on many recent events and the experiences of blacks and Arab and Muslim North Americans, the book demonstrates that there is hardly any evidence to support the claim of a ‘colourless’, utopian North America.
