Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Ignored by politicians and journalists who routinely pronounce the 'death of multiculturalism' this extraordinary book shows how British society is re-made by young people that both carry and redefine the diversity of cultural life. Harris' unique contribution is his attentiveness to quotidian multicultural realities. The lesson - even more important now than when it was first published - is that ethnicity is defined not by the short-hand of identity labels like Sikh, Muslim, Black, White but rather by what people do everyday'

- Les Back, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London
