Colorblind Racism: Meghan Burke's Colorblind Racism

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationBook/Film/Article review


Colorblind Racism is a very nick-able book. I know this because my first review copy was nicked – I suspect by a student to whom I had meant to loan, not give, the book. I explained this loss of the book to the review editor of this journal and she kindly ordered me a second copy. When it arrived, I took the second copy of Colorblind Racism into the field with me to peruse it while conducting research in the remote Aboriginal community of Barunga, Northern Territory, Australia. I recommended it to a colleague who had accompanied me into the field – and she took the copy I loaned her back home with her after the fieldwork. Luckily, this nicker of my second review copy suffered from pangs of guilt and returned the book to me in the post.
