Book Description

16 Feb 2011
East London has undergone dramatic changes over the last 30 years, primarily as a result of London's large scale de-industrialisation and the rise in its financial sector. Large parts of inner East London remain deprived, but a once overwhelmingly white working class area is now home to a more complex and mobile class and ethnic mix. This topical book focuses on the aspirations of these different groups and the strategies they have pursued about where to live, driven in part by a concern to ensure a good education for their children. The book will be essential reading for students and academics in sociology, urban studies, geography and multicultural studies.

Product Description

Review

"This book provides a valuable and original contribution to the existing literature by containing a wealth of new empirical material on London's changing social composition, especially in relation to education. " Paul Watt, Birkbeck, University of London "Tim Butler and Chris Hamnett have produced a compelling analysis of the importance of aspirations and education in understanding social class and ethnicity in contemporary Britain. This thought-provoking book is a 'must-read' for all those concerned to make better sense of social change in society." Diane Reay, Professor of Education, University of Cambridge "The book is thought provoking, informative and should generate some much needed debate about the complex issues it raises, amongst social scientists, educationists and hopefully policy-makers too." Journal of Education Policy "The book is thought provoking, informative and should generate some much needed debate about the complex issues it raises, amongst social scientists, educationists and hopefully policy-makers too." - Journal of Education Policy
