Abstract

Chris Gilligan Northern Ireland and the Crisis of Anti- Racism. Rethinking Racism and Sectarianism (Manchester University Press, Manchester, 201 isbn 7), 978- 0- 7190- 8652- 6 (hardback ) This book makes an important and innovative contribution to the study of racism and of plural societies by connecting two different, yet similar sources of diversity, namely religious diversity stemming from the living together of Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland and migr gation- enerated ‘new’ diversity. The author, Chris Gilligan from the University of the West of Scotland, argues that these two forms of diversity have resulted in - sectari anism and racism, which conceptually are two sides of the same coin and “prevent human beings from being fully human” (p. 197). Hence, he calls for an attempt to overcome this crisis for humanity, which is according to him, facilitated by capitalism and the current multicultural framework of anti- sectarianism and anti- racism, through r thinking the plur e- al form of racism and anti- racism. The author argues that anti- racism and racism are caught between the contradiction of the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity on the one hand and the reality of restrictions on human freedom, inequality
