The rise of the meritocracy by Michael Dunlop Young( Book )

48 editions published between 1958 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Young has christened the oligarchy of the future Meritocracy. Indeed, the word is now part of the English language. It would appear that the formula: IQ+Effort=Merit may well constitute the basic belief of the ruling class in the twenty-first century. Projecting himself into the year 2034, the author of this sociological satire shows how present decisions and practices may remold our society.It is widespread knowledge that it is insufficient to be somebody's nephew to obtain a responsible post in business, government, teaching, or science. Experts in education and selection apply scientific principles to sift out the leaders of tomorrow. You need intelligence rating, qualification, experience, application, and a certain caliber to achieve status. In a word, one must show merit to advance in the new society of tomorrow.In a new opening essay, Young reflects on the reception of his work, and its production, in a candid and lively way. Many of the critical ambiguities surrounding its original publication are now clarified and resolved. What we have is what the Guardian of London called A brilliant essay. and what Time and Tide described as a fountain gush of new ideas. Its wit and style make it compulsively enjoyable reading from cover to cover."--Provided by publisher

The new East End : kinship, race and conflict by Geoff Dench( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential non-fiction books of the 1950s was "Family and Kinship in East London", which examined in great depth the life of people living in the dockland areas that had been so comprehensively destroyed in the blitz. What has happened since? In the 50 years since the whole area went into terrible decline, has been comprehensively redeveloped (sometimes more than once) and - most important of all - the traditional families have largely left the area to be replaced by a huge influx of Bangladeshi families - now many into the second generation. What are their lives like? How is the community coping with the radical change? What are the relations between the old white population and the new Asian population? Does government policy affect racism? ( - here the authors show - startlingly - that housing policies have made race relations much worse and must be changed - this will be very controversial). The book is a comprehensive examination of life in one of the most intriguing parts of England - but it stands for all Britain - indeed everywhere in the world with large new immigrant populations
