Majority Cultures and the Everyday Politics of Ethnic Difference

This book examines the ways in which ‘majority’ Western cultures govern, imagine and represent established minorities and recent immigrants. It offers an international perspective drawing upon in-depth case studies from the EU, North America and Middle East. It reviews rapidly developing theories of identity, nationalism and racism.
It addresses a very topical issue – how do ordinary people view immigration and its impact?Examining the ways in which majority Western cultures govern, represent and exclude those that are considered to be ethically ‘other’, this book asks what is the impact of globalization, governance and Western immigration controls on the construction of the majority ‘self’ and the minority ‘other’?
