+
+This was a gift from Ed for my 27th birthday.
+
+It explains structural racism and power structures in Britain.
+Although it touches on the US civil rights movement, it focuses explicitly on Britain, which I liked.
+There were a number of stories that were new to me.
+
+It's well-written and easy to read, if uncomfortable -- I read it over a couple of days.
+
+Highly recommended as an accessible introduction to power structures and racism in Britain.
+I reckon I'd absorbed at least half the key ideas through osmosis from social media, but the history and British take on it were new.
