The Clamour of Nationalism: Race and the Nation in Twenty-First Century Britain
London N1 9DY

With Sivamohan Valluvan.
tickets available in advance from www.housmans.com/events

Sivamohan Valluvan seeks to find a meaningful understanding of the new nationalism sweeping Europe.
Drawing on a variety of cultural and political themes, including the cult of Churchillism, the neoliberal fixation with a 'point-system' immigration policy, the muscular secularism of Richard Dawkins and friends, fears that the white working class have 'become black', this book provides a dazzling study of how nationalism is the politics of today only because it is a politics of everything.
