This review is from: The Diversity Illusion: What We Got Wrong About Immigration & How to Set It Right (Kindle Edition)
Even before the Equality Act, every public and most private body in the UK paid homage to "diversity" on the basis of the glibly unexamined assumption that more diversity would make us all happier and burnish the halo of moral rectitude of those promoting the idea. Ed West cooly dismantles this, using a vast array of evidence to demonstrate that "diversity" not only has no democratic support but how its promotion is liable to have effects that run counter to the benevolent effects assumed by the proponents of diversity. The book is very much focused on the experience of the UK and can be seen as a companion to the wider perspective of mass migration into Europe analysed by Christopher Caldwell's "Reflections on the Revolution in Europe".
