'Sleepwalking to segregation'? : Challenging myths about race and migration Paperback / softback


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 in opposition to them in an accessible yet academically rigorous manner.

The book combines an easy-to-read overview of the subject with innovative new research.

It tackles head-on questions about levels of immigration, the contribution of immigrants, minority self-segregation, ghettoisation and the future diversity of the population.

The authors argue that the myths of race and migration are the real threat to an integrated society and recommend that focus should return to problems of inequality and prejudice.
