Description: Recent films and novels like White Teeth, The Buddha of Suburbia, and East Is East have exposed issues of multiculturalism in Britain to be both like, and unlike, our own. From the expulsions from Uganda under Idi Amin and the exodus of Hong Kong Chinese to more recent immigrants from the Indian subcontinent, new arrivals have vastly changed the face of British citizenship and identity.

In this direct and hard-hitting investigation of both public and private life, a leading British cultural critic asks difficult questions and poses complex responses to these astonishing transformations. Based on her own experience, as well as the results of more than a hundred interviews, Alibhai-Brown casts her unflinching gaze not only on the white, male establishment in the media, educational life, and politics, but also on the presumptions of British feminists and isolationism and complacency in minority communities. The author looks as well at the impact of these changes on families, intimate relationships, and a personal sense of self.

Passionate and personal, this challenging book will be of interest to anyone considering the issues of multiculturalism in the post-colonial society.
