This timely book focuses on the interactions of multiple ethnic groups in the contemporary inner city. Focusing in particular on Muslim communities, and the discrimination they have faced, it addresses difficult issues of integration and identity, while offering a detailed exploration of the politics and practice of multicultural coexistence. It will be essential reading for urban policy scholars and those studying ethnic diversity and the politics of space and place.
Caroline Howarth | London School of Economics and Political Science
“A fascinating and revealing account of the micro-interactions of life in a contemporary British community. It is a very timely discussion which should help to challenge simplistic stereotypes of multiculturalism ‘failing,’ urban decline, and interethnic conflict.”
Therese O’Toole | University of Bristol
Lived Diversities is a suggestive, richly textured study of everyday urban multiculture. Its engagement with issues of conflict, conviviality, and banal civility will reward and challenge researchers and practitioners working through the implications of diversity for contemporary conceptions of citizenship.”
Gavan Titley | National University of Ireland
“Husband, et al.’s, fine-grained study provides a necessary and compelling response to the corrosive but durable stereotypes of Bradford that have been circulated over the last years.”
John Eade | University of Roehampton
“An intelligent and lively contribution to the critique of ‘social cohesion’ discourse in the policy sector. It provides a vivid analysis of local Bradford street life, where cars, buildings, and sounds play an integral social, cultural, and political role.”
