1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By AbidH on 4 Dec. 2011
Format: Paperback
Multi culturalism is nothing new nor is it a test tube baby born of the New Labour boom of the 90's. Fast forward a decade or two and we have a rising rhetoric of hate fuelled by misinformation, the media, countless wars and an attempt at redefining the political landscape through speeches and policy that hark back to the dark days. The dangerous ideas promoted by some of Europe's leaders from Cameron to Sarkozy to Merkel threaten the very fabric of our society whilst pandering to an increasingly vocal and prominent far right collective of politicians, think tanks and street thugs!

Defending Multi Culturalism is a wonderfully timed response to David Cameron's speech of February 2011 in Munich. The strength of the response is not simply in presenting a well articulated counter narrative to critics of multi culturalism it lies in the wealth of different contributions from politicans, artists, community activists and academics.

It is no surprise an attack on multi culturalism coincides with the most challenging economic conditions to face our generation. Our banks have led us to the brink, our governments have burdened future generations with crippling debts and our foreign policy decisions and war mongering have resulted in hundreds of thousands of lives lost and contributed to instability across faultlines throughout the world.

If the 70's saw a blanket approach to racism and hate that targeted minorities of all backgrounds the narrative and focus of attacks since the turn of the millenium have become increasingly focused on the Muslim community with a rising tide of Islamaphobia raging through Britain and Europe.
