not yet rated|write a review
France and Britain are traditionally perceived as having divergent attitudes to the issue of minority identities. In France the idea that a person can be both a French citizen and have an ethnic or religious identity is unacceptable, while in Britain community cohesion promotes the combining of race or faith with the idea of being British. This volume examines the problems posed by these assumptions and the realities that are forcing them to be revisited.
