Stories from a Migrant City: Living and Working Together in the Shadow of Brexit

by Ben Rogaly - £19.99  Manchester University Press (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781526131737 | ISBN 10: 1526131730

This book intervenes in the immigration debate, showing how moving away from a racialized local/migrant dichotomy can help to unite people on the basis of their common humanity.
 
Drawing on over one hundred stories and eight years of research in a provincial English city, Rogaly asks what that city (and indeed England as a whole) stands for in the Brexit era. Stories from the city's homes and streets, and from its warehouse and food factory workplaces, challenge middle-class condescension towards working-class cultures. They also reveal a non-elite cosmopolitanism, which contrasts with the more familiar association of cosmopolitanism with elites.
 
The book combines critique with resources for hope. It is aimed at general readers as well as students and lecturers in geography, sociology, migration studies and oral history.
