Reviews


"This excellent book is a substantial contribution to the field bringing together the urban politics and race policy literatures in a fascinating comparative study. It is an interesting story, well told, and highly instructive for policy-makers and academics alike."
Peter John, University of Manchester


"This study is important to our understanding of immigrants as political actors, and how national and local political systems shape their access and participation."
Martin Schain, New York University

"A very welcome addition to the literature on ethnic minority politics. Recommended reading for anyone … interested in ethnic minority political participation. Provides useful insights into the practice and operation of local politics in two very different political systems and as such should be recommended reading for anyone with an interest in local and urban politics in France and Britain."
Dr Alistair Clark, University of Birmingham, Local Government Studies
