About the book. Britain has made some progress towards reducing racist violence and racial discrimination, but it still has a long way to go before it can claim to be a tolerant and just multi-ethnic society that is at ease with, delights in and profits from its rich diversity.

This report by the Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain describes and analyses the contemporary reality. This article outlines the basic theses of the Report on The Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain. It then goes on to explain why and how it was misunderstood and misrepresented by the right-wing press, and draws important general lessons about the nature of political discourse.

Britain’s history had always “foreign” influences, through conquest, trade, migration, travel. Southall's Sikhs, Leicester's Hin dus and Brixton's black populations live in areas with white majorities - Leicester, for example, is 70 per cent white - giving the race map of Britain's cities a.

Most homegrown commentators on race and multiculturalism in Britain find it very difficult to believe that multi-ethnic Britain has anything much it can learn from continental Europe. Arguing against this view, Favell diagnoses the reasons why British academics tend to fall back on 'exceptionalist' arguments.

It is wrong to characterize the achievements and peculiarities of British.
