Title: From Legislation to Integration: Twenty-Two Years of the Race Relations Act, 1976 (Migration, Minorities and Citizenship)
Description: blue, Palgrave Macmillan Ltd. 2000. (ISBN: 0333733169). Hardcover, 14 x 1.8 x 21.6 cm. Condition good, clean with dust jacket. Britain is now permanently a multi-racial and multi-cultural society. New economic and social relationships have developed in the last fifty years as a result of the arrival and settlement of a signifi-cant number of people from the former colonies, as workers and their families, whose colour differs from that of the indigenous white population. These ethnic minorities constitute 6.3 per cent of the total population. From Legislation to Integration? provides answers to some challenging questions. What were the objectives of race relations legislation? Is it possible to reach an agreement on all sides that legislation has indeed made a difference? What indicators could be used to assess the relative success or failure of the legislation? How should the current legislation be improved to deal with a multi-ethnic Britain in the twenty-first century? These and other questions are directly and indirectly addressed by the contributors to this book. In order to gain a wider range of views on the subject, the contributors include a politician, lawyer, political philosopher, journalist, race relations experts, academics and researchers who have achieved eminence in their own professional fields. Their distinct disciplines, unique sets of experiences, and different styles combine to provide a book that has coherence, depth and character. It will appeal to social scientists, policy makers and professionals in the relevant fields locally, nationally and internationally.
