This look offers a close look at contested communities through the lens of Rotherham, an English town struggling to survive in terms of its image, profile and identity. Recently divided, and left reeling, from the powerful impact of the Jay report on Child Sexual Exploitation, and increasingly used as a center for activism and agitation by the far right, Rotherham could be seen as an exemplar of a contested community. But what happens when a community confronts an identity that has been forced upon it? How does a community re-define itself? More than simply a book about Rotherham, this is a book about history, culture, feelings, methods and ideas that will help to articulate the lived meanings of political cultures in Britain today.
