About this book

This book discusses the meaning and practice of British community cohesion policies, youth identities in racially-tense areas and the British government's attempts to 'prevent violent extremism' amongst young Muslims.

About the authors

PAUL THOMAS Senior Lecturer in Youth and Community Work at the School of Education and Professional Development, University of Huddersfield, UK. Previously he was Youth Campaigns Officer at the Commission for Racial Equality in the north of England, and worked for a national voluntary sector youth work organisation.

Reviews

"[Thomas] questions the singular policy emphasis of academics on difference rather than commonality...and that ethno-racial social processes need to be understood locally as well as nationally, and in terms of their actual practice rather than seen through an ideological lens. These insights are usefully extended in discussions of class, gender, and territory in ethno-racial relations among young people." - Contemporary Sociology

"An important and much-needed contribution to the debates about multiculturalism...I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in developing a critical understanding of this contested territory" - Youth & Policy

"[It] makes a contribution to the literature on community cohesion by challenging myths and assumptions about key debates and terms, and by problematizing the boundaries of 'progressive' critiques and actions against ethnic inequalities and racism...this book also provides an important historical policy background to these debates" - Sociological Review
