This book presents a wide-ranging overview of current debates and research in issues relating to race and ethnicity in contemporary British society. It focuses on the extent of racial inequality while encapsulating the character of recent theories and debates that focus on issues of ethnic diversity and culture. It adopts a primarily sociological approach, using recent studies to assess the changing profile of race and ethnicity in Britain.

Industry Reviews

'In this book, Pilkington has provided us with a new resource that will be useful for all those getting to grips with understanding race and racism from sociological and political perspectives. It will be especially useful as an introductory resource for students of social science, while its broad sweep and clear line of argument will make it a useful refresher and challenge to those who have more experience in the field.' - Rob Berkeley, Runnymede's Quarterly Bulletin
