Publisher Comments:

Allan Pred writes compellingly about the reawakening of racism throughout Europe at the end of the twentieth centuryand#151;even in Sweden, a country widely regarded as the very model of social justice and equality. Many thousands of non-European and Muslim immigrants and refugees who took advantage of Sweden's generous immigration policies now find themselves the object of discrimination and worse.

Through the cascading juxtaposition of many voices, including his own, Pred describes the intensifying cultural racism of the 1990s, the proliferation of negative ethnic stereotypes, and the spatial segregation of the non-Swedish. He quotes the newspaper Dagens Nyheter: "It is high time that Sweden reconsider its self-image as the stronghold of tolerance" (July 21, 1998), and analyzes the strategies that allow people to maintain that self-image. Perhaps the greatest strength of Even in Sweden is that Pred gives to the social consequences of global economic restructuring some very specific faces and places and a multitude of expressions of human will, both ill and good.

Synopsis:

In the context of persistently high unemployment rates and more general economic uncertainty, racism has resurged throughout Western Europe. Even in Sweden, a country long stereotyped by Western intellectuals as the very model of rational social justice and equality.

"Written in a striking, experimental style, this is an insightful and impressive book on a topic of enormous contemporary significance."and#151;James Ferguson, author of Expectations of Modernity

"Pred works with a powerful set of ideas and arresting empirical materials to create a series of interlocking, overlapping, and superimposed spaces within which modern racism is brought into view with a shocking clarity. "and#151;Derek Gregory, author of Geographical Imaginations
