White privilege : the myth of a post-racial society by Kalwant Bhopal( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why and how do those from black and minority ethnic communities continue to be marginalised? Bhopal explores how neoliberal policy-making has increased discrimination faced by those from non-white backgrounds. This important book examines the impact of race on wider issues of inequality and difference in society
Imagining the new Britain by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a gap between the Britain that most people imagine and the Britain that really is. Myth: The Royal Family, fish and chips, Shakespeare. Reality: multicultural families, curry, Zadie Smith. The New Britain is a multicultural society, where there are more biracial couples than in any other western nation, and where Islam is the fastest-growing religion. Yasmin Alibhai-Brown investigates this new multiculturalism in post-colonial Britain. Drawing on her own experiences, wide research, and over one hundred interviews, Alibhai-Brown offers a fresh look at such topics as racism, imperialism, immigration, and identity politics. Imagining the New Britain offers a startling portrait of the vastly changing face of British citizenship and identity"--BOOK JACKET
Who do we think we are? : imagining the New Britain by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Food, fashion, music and the arts have all been changed irrevocably by the migrations into and around Britain since the 1950s. Yet huge and influential areas of both private and public Britain refuse to acknowledge or accept the changes. This book examines why people must learn from each other
Mixed feelings : the complex lives of mixed race Britons by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a leading black female commentator in the British media, and her new book offers insight on mixed-race Britain. Opening with a historical perspective, she traces up to the twenty-first century the reactions - often rabid - to mixed-race relationships, and the influences of imperialism and large-scale immigration. With research drawn from couples, parents and children, she offers us unique insight into the stresses as well as the strengths of links across the race divide. She asks why social policy makers have been so slow to deal with the particular problems of this growing and significant group. The influence of race on national identity is a crucial current debate and this book gives voice to the issue, addressing difficult dilemmas but also suggesting positive solutions to the often instinctive reactions aroused by the breaking down of old barriers. Mixed Feelings is an essential report into the future of the nation."--Jacket
Exotic England : the making of a curious nation by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"England may be a small country on a small island, but its inhabitants have always had a boundless curiosity about the world beyond their shoreline. From the nation's modern origins in the Renaissance, travellers have eagerly roamed the globe and been enticed by the diversity and richness of other civilizations. And, while this appetite for adventure has often been tainted by aggression or exploitation, the English have also carried within them a capacity to soak up new experiences and ideas and to weave them into every aspect of life back home, from language and literature to customs and culture. Here we trace this golden thread of otherness through five centuries of English history to reveal how it has shaped the buildings, flavoured the food, powered the economy, and created a truly diverse society.Today, when England is no longer synonymous with Britain and the English ask themselves who they are, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown paints a sumptuous and illuminating portrait of who they have been and brings a fresh, invigorating perspective on what 'Englishness' really means."--Publisher description

Refusing the veil by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This topic divides people - and it will divide readers of this book too. Many Muslims worldwide either support or adopt religious veiling, and those who argue against it are often criticised, or worse. But, according to Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, the veil throws up a number of concerns, from questions of health and freedom of choice to issues of gender and personal identity. She argues that veiling conceals abuse, propagates eating disorders and restricts access to sunlight and exercise. It is imposed on babies and young girls, allows women to be shamed for not covering up, and has become associated with extremist factions. It demonises men, oppresses feminism and presents obstacles to performance and success. It even encourages racism, distorts Muslim values and strips women of autonomy and individuality. Written from a unique perspective and packed with personal experiences as well as public examples, Yasmin addresses the ultimate question of why Muslim women everywhere should refuse the veil
All our welfare : towards participatory social policy by Peter Beresford( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The UK welfare state is under sustained ideological and political attack. It has also been undermined by accusations of paternalism and past failures to engage with the very people it is intended to help. This unique book is the first to critique the past, present and future welfare state from a participatory perspective. Peter Beresford, champion of user involvement, draws on pioneering theories and practice of welfare service user movements to offer a blueprint for a new participatory social policy. He controversially challenges orthodox social policy and the limitations of both Fabian and Neo-liberal perspectives in engaging people to improve their own welfare, drawing on service users ' own ideas and experience, including fascinating vignettes from his own family's experience, to demonstrate the value of 'user knowledge'. Filling a much-needed gap in the literature, this accessible text will provide a great introduction for students and a road-map for practitioners of an alternative vision for a future participatory and sustainable social policy. It will also command much wider interest from everyone concerned with how we look after each other in future in society
Some of my best friends are - : collected journalism 1989-2004 by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether condemning the Taliban in a column published on 10 September 2001, boycotting Israeli goods, becoming a 'surrendered wife', or deciding, upon reflection, that accepting her MBE was an offensive homage to the repressive British Empire, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is never far from controversy. Her weekly columns in the Independent are required reading for anyone concerned with issues of ethnicity, Islam and family life in Britain. But as this first collection of her award-winning journalism demonstrates, her interests extend as far as Indian cooking, the state of the BBC, Tottenham Hotspur and the Clifton Suspension Bridge."--Jacket

From outside in : an anthology of writings by refugees on Britain and britishness( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... a collection of memoir, fiction and poetry that explores being British from the perspective of the newly arrived ..."--Cover 4. This anthology brings together contributions by poets, playwrights, journalists and those with no previous writing experience from fifteen different countries to reflect on what Britain and British cultural identity means to them. Each piece is preceded by a useful introductory paragraph, which contextualises the personal experience of the author, and provides a link to the wider debates on refugees and identity. Importantly this book highlights the diversity of refugee experience, not simply in its involvement of different races and nationalities but in the attitudes and reactions of those involved

Down with the royals by Joan Smith( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Prince George was just eight weeks old, the Evening Standard declared him to be ‘the most influential person in London'. He couldn't even walk, let alone talk. Yet one day he could become head of state, whether we like it or not. Joan Smith argues that it has become nearly impossible to question the existence of the monarchy. Articulate republicans are drowned out while the supercharged PR and media machines ask only who designed Kate's dresses. Smith topples the arguments for having a monarchy, one by one. The royals don't provide a boost for tourism, and their deliberately opaque accoun

Down With the Royals by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Prince George was just eight weeks old, the Evening Standard declared him to be 'the most influential person in London'. He couldn't even walk, let alone talk. Yet one day he could become head of state, whether we like it or not. Joan Smith argues that it has become nearly impossible to question the existence of the monarchy. Articulate republicans are drowned out while the supercharged PR and media machines ask only who designed Kate's dresses. Smith topples the arguments for having a monarchy, one by one. The royals don't provide a boost for tourism, and their deliberately opaque accounting conceals the truth about the huge burden they place on the public purse. And she exposes darker truths. These symbols of so-called impartiality have hidden power and influence. Not only does Charles regularly lobby government ministers but ? far from the sycophantic reporting of Kate's baby bump ? the royals have dined with despots with blood on their hands. Are these people really fi t to be the public face of a modern country? Ultimately, Smith declares that the monarchy ? undemocratic, unaccountable and shockingly expensive ? has no place in modern Britain
