This chapter introduces the main themes of the book. It notes that, since the 1980s, there has been a crisis of anti-racist theory and practice. It also notes that sectarianism in Northern Ireland has been largely excluded from attempts to rethink anti-racism. The chapter argues that, as part of the attempt to rethink anti-racism, there is a need to clear up confusions. The author suggests that the contradictory uses of ‘race’ and ethnicity is one of the key confusions in the literature on racism and anti-racism.
