Is Britain really under threat from ethnic diversity? Is the social fabric crumbling as we sleepwalk to segregation? In the context of renewed debates about diversity and cohesion, this book interrogates contemporary claims about race and migration. It demonstrates that many of the claims are myths, presenting evidence in support of and opposition to them in an accessible yet academically rigorous manner. The authors argue that the myths of race and migration are the real threat to an integrated society. They propose that diversity and mobility are expected and benign, and recommend that focus should return to problems of inequality and prejudice.
