A comprehensive examination of ethnic minority poverty in Britain. Using the most up-to-date research and statistics, it compares the extent of income poverty among different groups and the population as a whole. It weighs up the various possible explanations for the relative disadvantage of minority ethnic groups. Finally it looks at current social policy initiatives and future policy directions. A comprehensive examination of ethnic minority poverty in Britain. Using the most up-to-date research and statistics, it compares the extent of income poverty among different groups and the population as a whole. It weighs up the various possible explanations for the relative disadvantage of minority ethnic groups. Finally it looks at current social policy initiatives and future policy directions. It is clear that minority ethnic groups generally are not experiencing the same levels of prosperity that the population as a whole enjoys. Within this generality however, there are enormous differences between groups - some being on a par with the majority, others far worse off. Examining and analysing the experience of different groups makes it possible - without downplaying the significance of racism - to appreciate the structural, historical and other factors that also affect ethnic minority poverty. This multi-stranded approach differentiates Parallel Lives from other works which take a more simplistic view by contrasting the minority experience as a whole with that of the 'white' population. This book will be essential reading for academics, researchers and students of social science and social policy; for policymakers, campaign groups and anyone else interested in ethnic minority issues.
