Reviews

  • Fascinating, invigorating . . . this book is for everyone . . . we have an academic like Emma Dabiri writing as if James Connolly and Audre Lorde had a love child

    Jess Kav, Irish Times
  • A gamechanging skewering of social-media discourse with a historically grounded analysis of anti-racism, collectivism, neoliberalism, and post-colonialism

    Jason Okundaye, Vogue
  • Deftly and wittily deconstructs allyship and white saviour tropes to give an unblinkered takedown of what needs to happen next

    Francesca Brown, Stylist
  • A thoughtful, nuanced read that is deftly researched and studded with relevant reflections from Dabiri's own life in Ireland, the UK and the US... Dabiri is on top form when applying her razor-sharp analysis to the symbiotic relationship between capitalism and racism, and how it harms us all

    Georgina Lawton, iNews
  • Vital, needs to be read by as many people as possible . . . One of those rare books that is completely clarifying and that you find yourself referring back to for years to come

  • I really loved What White People Can Do Next: so smart, so readable, so helpful. There is so much I hadn't thought about before - 'whiteness' as a confection, the empty performance of online rhetoric, the impossibility of transferring privilege - and so much that I had somewhere in the back of my mind but that I'd struggled to articulate.

    Nick Horby, author of Just Like You
  • Refreshing . . . A nuanced and historical analysis of post-colonialism, anti-racism and collectivism. The sharpest of any book out on 'race' in recent years

    Good Readers Club
  • Vitally important and written with intelligence and insight, this book is an essential companion for anyone seeking to understand racism, on the journey towards an anti-racist future

    Jeffrey Boakye
  • Fantastic . . . a wonderfully concise deconstruction of race and racism Emma is challenging the inherent power dynamics in the concept of allyship, arguing instead for coalition when it comes to how people can confront the structures of racism

    The Blindboy Podcast
  • Concise, sure-footed and complete . . . a battle cry against racism for even the most socially aware . . . Dabiri's reflections have been a very, very long time coming

    Tanya Sweeny, Irish Independent
