The new East End : kinship, race and conflict by Geoff Dench( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential non-fiction books of the 1950s was "Family and Kinship in East London", which examined in great depth the life of people living in the dockland areas that had been so comprehensively destroyed in the blitz. What has happened since? In the 50 years since the whole area went into terrible decline, has been comprehensively redeveloped (sometimes more than once) and - most important of all - the traditional families have largely left the area to be replaced by a huge influx of Bangladeshi families - now many into the second generation. What are their lives like? How is the community coping with the radical change? What are the relations between the old white population and the new Asian population? Does government policy affect racism? (- here the authors show - startlingly - that housing policies have made race relations much worse and must be changed - this will be very controversial). The book is a comprehensive examination of life in one of the most intriguing parts of England - but it stands for all Britain - indeed everywhere in the world with large new immigrant populations
