"This collection challenges many of the dogmas that have defined issues of anti-racism and social justice in the past. In this spirit of rethinking, the contributors point us in the necessary direction of deepening and evolving non-racialism in contemporary South Africa." Neeshan Balton, Executive Director, Ahmed Kathrada Foundation

"Over the years Marxism has sustained scathing criticism for its alleged class reductionism and blindness to race. Without pronouncing finality on these issues, this volume examines the unfinished business of Marxism and its treatment of race and racism." Phindile Kunene, Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education
