This invaluable textbook offers a brief and accessible summary of knowledge about social divisions by `race' in Britain. The new edition brings the information up-to-date and expands discussion of important questions on immigration and crime statistics.

`Race' in Britain Today contains a wealth of information on the experiences and life chances of black people - in education, the labour market, health, welfare, housing and the criminal justice system. It both illuminates general issues of `race' and racism - in so far as they are quantifiable - and provides helpful demographic background on specific minority ethnic groups. The book also locates `race' within the context of other divisions in society, notably class and gender.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The contents are fascinating.... Paul Gordon's introductory article on The Racialisation of Statistics is particularly enlightening. He puts forward cogently the arguments for and against collecting racial statistics.... the body of facts in this book is impressive' - Morning Star

`The Second Edition of this book continues to provide a useful range of information and statistics on a variety of aspects of "race" in Britain in the Nineties. It is presented with sensitivity and will be a valuable resource for any student of "race" issues, education or indeed anyone concerned about inequality' - European Journal of Intercultural Studies
