Show Summary Details


This book focuses on the changing terrain of ethnic disadvantage in Britain, drawing on up-to-date sources. It goes further than texts that merely describe ethnic inequalities to explore and explain their dynamic nature. The book suggests that the increasing diversity of experience among different ethnic groups is a key to understanding continuing and emerging tensions and conflicts. It provides up-to-date data and analysis of ethnic diversity and changing patterns of disadvantage in Britain; covers key areas of social life, including demographic trends, education, employment, housing, health, gender, and policing and community disorder; is written by experts in the field; and addresses issues of urgent public importance in the context of recent community disorder and the resurgence of the far right.

Keywords: ethnic disadvantage; ethnic inequalities; ethnic groups; tensions; conflict; Britain; social life; demographic trends; education; employment
