Mitchell Michael (editor). Ethnic Diversity in the UK. An Imagined Community?
Langenscheidt English Language Teaching, 2008. — 64 pages. — (Viewfinder)
This collection of essential texts is designed to give an insight into who came to the UK, the problems they faced, the reactions of British people, and the challenges and opportunities of living in a modern, ethnically and culturally diverse society.
Each text is accompanied by additional information, structured tasks and hints for further reading to allow students to hear voices that use the medium of English to talk about their diverse society, and to use their understanding and imagination to take part in the debate about the communities of the future.
Since the Second World War British society has gone through extraordinary changes. Is there still a recognizable common British identity?
In the postwar period, immigration, particularly from former colonies in the Caribbean and the Indian subcontinent, led to concerns about the integration of 'minorities' of different races or cultures. In recent years, as a result of globalization, regional conflicts and the opening of the EU to Eastern Europe, the UK has become a place of 'super-diversity', raising new questions about identity and what it means to be British in the 21st century.
