In this timely study, the author examines the historical approach to race and diversity and suggests that equality strategies have been a vital, but limited, means of addressing discrimination and community tensions. Community Cohesion, it argues, offers a new framework to break down the barriers between different communities and understand the more fundamental causes of racism and the 'fear of difference'. Concepts of multiculturalism, identity and citizenship are also reviewed and the developing practice of community cohesion is described.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Reviews of the first edition:

'Cantle's concept of community cohesion transcends the polarised debate between integration and multi-culturalism...[his] analysis is both intellectually rigorous and admirably pragmatic in its desire to shape effective practice in a highly contentious policy domain.'

- Professor Vivien Lowndes, Leicester de Montfort University

'Ted Cantle is the pre-eminent authority on community cohesion in the UK. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the practicalities of managing diversity in the 21st century. The challenge of integrating new communities is laid bare, along with the solutions. Anyone wanting to know how to build shared values and bring communities together should start here.'

- Oona King, Former MP.

'Required reading - sane and brave'.

- Trevor Phillips, Chair, Equality and Human Rights Commission
