"A very welcome addition to the literature on ethnic minority politics. Recommended reading for anyone … interested in ethnic minority political participation. Provides useful insights into the practice and operation of local politics in two very different political systems and as such should be recommended reading for anyone with an interest in local and urban politics in France and Britain."
