Reviews

“Eurocentrism, Racism and Knowledge is a timely contribution to this debate. It brings together international scholars and political activists to reflect on Eurocentrism – its premise and contestations – in Europe and the Americas. … the volume will certainly attract interest within and beyond academia precisely because there is an attempt in the volume at a simultaneous critique of Eurocentrism and certain postcolonial approaches.” (Sandrine Bertaux, Ethnic and Racial Studies, May, 2016)
