Naked Reading 2023 II
I've updated my Naked Reading page with my second book of 2023, Hostile Environment:
This political and cultural history by Maya Goodfellow outlines the UK’s attitude and policy in regard to immigration. It does so via numerous case studies of decades of increasingly cruel immigration policies, and demonstrates how the current hateful Conservative government politics are built on the back of numerous governments reaching to immigration as a political weapon. Something they are able to do thanks to our failure as a nation to understand the reality of race and immigration or our colonial history. A great overview of the history, politics and cultural background of the subject.
That's my mini-review, but I've also written more extensive thoughts on my new book review blog.
Additionally, as with the previous image in the series, as a bonus for my Patreon supporters, I've shared some alternate takes from the shoot as a little extra.
