About this book

Exploring the most topical issues around migration and integration in relation to Britain, this book, now in paperback, examines people smuggling and the elite labour migration that is becoming a feature of Britain. It also examines the concepts of social capital, social cohesion and Britishness that are being used to critique multiculturalism.

Reviews

"The major strength of this volume is its wide-ranging use of quantitative and qualitative data and engagement with the confluent global processes defining the ethnic fabric of Britain's academic and employment sectors...the book can readily be recommended as an important contribution on ethnicity in Britain." - Political Studies
