Intolerant Britain? Hate, Citizenship and Difference

by Derek McGhee - £27.99  Open University Press (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780335216741 | ISBN 10: 0335216749

This fascinating book uses case studies to explore a number of high-profile and contemporary 'social problems' that exist in British society, including: racism and institutional racism, ethnic & religious community segregation, islamophobia and the incitement of religious hatred, homophobia, institutional homophobia and community safety. At the same time the book examines various legislative and strategic movements introduced to tackle these social problems, for example strategies to counter institutional prejudices (especially in policing), hate crime legislation, managed migration, community safety and community cohesion strategies. Throughout the book McGhee contextualises these strategies within the government's wider project of attempting to revitalise British citizenship.
