Summary and Info
Is Britain under threat from ethnic diversity? Is the social fabric crumbling as people 'sleepwalk to segregation'? In the context of renewed debates about diversity and cohesion, this book interrogates contemporary claims about race and migration in Britain. It demonstrates that many of the claims are in fact myths. It presents evidence in support of — and opposition to — these myths in an accessible yet academically rigorous manner. The book argues that the myths of race and migration are the real threat to an integrated society. It proposes that diversity and mobility are expected and benign, and recommends that focus should return to problems of inequality and prejudice. 'Sleepwalking to Segregation'? combines an easy-to-read overview of the subject with innovative new research. It tackles head-on questions about levels of immigration, the contribution of immigrants, minority self-segregation, ghettoisation, and the future diversity of the population. It poses a direct challenge to the arguments of commentators such as MigrationWatchUK and the Commission for Equality and Human Rights.
