Reviews

Anyone seeking an authoritative analysis of multiculturalism need look no further than this book. Comparative in nature, sophisticated yet accessible, it demolishes the myths that opponents have created around multicultural policies. The author also provides an incisive contribution to where the debate about such poicies should move in the future. * Professor Lord Anthony Giddens *
Ali Rattansi has written a highly accessible and academically sound analysis of research outcomes and actual policy measures in Britain and several other West European immigration countries, in particular France and the Netherlands. He argues convincingly that implementing core Western values cannot but lead to a form of multiculturalism, even though most politicians no longer like to give it that name. I highly recommend reading this book. * Han Entzinger, Erasmus University Rotterdam *
