"Yet, it has the great value of underlining that Africa's future isindeed in the hands of Africans, and only they will determine if itis a successful future or a return to second fiddle of humanhistory ... At the same time, I am sure, those who know Africa willrealize how much this book reflect the reality on the ground. Areality that will surprise the world in the years to come." (SouthWorld, 1 October 2011)

"This is powerful stuff. The author intends no scholarlydispassion, no footnoted academic treatise. Rather he presents animpassioned argument at length, replete with examples, full of wordgames to emphasize a point. There is fire in this work. The book isinteresting, written with passion and obvious pleasure in playingwith the language. The Threat of Race is a strong addition to thegrowing library of anti-globalism, [and] anti-neoliberalcritiques." Indigenious Peoples and Issues Website
