‘This bracingly direct collection of essays maps the contours of a debate Britain must finally have – from how we commemorate the past to how whiteness remains a central axis of institutional power. Essential reading for anyone who is interested in the question of how Britain and the globe can and must decolonise.’
Priyamvada Gopal, University of Cambridge, and author of The Indian English Novel: Nation, History and Narration

‘From the colonies to the heart of empire, #RhodesMustFall reinvigorated the academy like no other student movement since the 1960s. This book is an explosive testament to that collective achievement, and a signpost for the intellectual road ahead.’
Xolela Mangcu, University of Cape Town, and author of Biko: A Life

Rhodes Must Fall is a protest movement that began on 9 March 2015, originally directed against a statue of British Imperialist Cecil Rhodes at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. The campaign for the statue's removal received global attention and led to a wider movement to decolonise education, by inspiring the emergence of allied student movements at other universities across the world.
