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.
