Abstract:

"This book is a documentary history of immigration into post-war Britain. Using a range of sources, it illustrates both the structural and personal reasons for immigration. The author pays special attention to the social and economic lives of immigrants--while some have found economic success, the majority remain underprivileged. Many have tried to maintain their ethnicity, especially through language, religion, politics and culture. As a result, many immigrants have faced varying degrees of hostility from the state and from individual "native" Britons."--Pub. desc.
