"Based on original research, each chapter analyses a different facet of equality and diversity and draws out the policy implications. The chapters adopt a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods to analyse cases from various countries, thereby highlighting differences and similarities in the formulation and implementation of equality and diversity policies. As a result the book provides an up-to-date review of developments in the subject area and reveals important lessons for policy-makers and practitioners."--Jacket." ;
