'Bringing together leading academics in the field of multicultural studies, this volume addresses the central politicalquestions of our time - social inclusion, subjective belonging and citizenship rights. From an interdisciplinary andcomparative perspective, these essays offer an authoritative insight into the prospects and problems of majority-minorityrelationships in multicultural societies in Europe, North America and Australia. The result is a definitive assessment of thepolitics of cultural diversity.'Bryan S. Turner, University of Western Sydney, Australia'This interdisciplinary collection provides valuable perspectives on the challenges of diversity. Migration has killed mythsof homogeneous nations. Mansouri, Lobo and their collaborators suggest that focusing on social inclusion could provideways towards a renewal of citizenship and social participation in all its facets. This collection, which focuses on Australia,has lessons for all countries transformed by immigration.'Stephen Castles, The University of Sydney, Australia
