pdf epub fb2 djvu



An examination of some of the major issues facing black and Asian minorities in Britain today, serving as both an introduction to the nature of racism and the response of communities and politicians. Before, during and after the 1987 general election, issues associated with race and race relations were of great significance, although the four major parties seemed keen to minimize direct reference to race. The author examines the approach of the various parties towards race issues and the role of the press in reporting party policy. The attempt to marginalize race issues in public debate has underlined the importance of this topic. This book seeks to explain some of the issues which have contributed to the present state of race-related policy and politics in Britain. It also sets these issues within the context of a society in which racism is ever present and examines the influences which have produced racist ideas. Finally, the author considers the way in which representatives of black and Asian minority communities have co-operated with governments at central and local levels to enhance the interests of their followers and bring about a degree of "racial harmony".
