Black City and White Country. Immigration and Identity in the History of British Decolonization, by Benedikt Stuchtey
Black City and White Country. Immigration and Identity in the History of British Decolonization" is the title of a new publication by Benedikt Stuchtey. The article has been published in the e-journal "Global Europe - Basel Papers on Europe in a Global Perspective".
In his article, the author looks at the question of integrative and disintegrative elements of imperial rule in multiethnic societies and identifies lines of continuity between the imperial past and post-imperial realities: What influence did immigration have on the construction of self-image in Britain after the Second World War, and what historical continuities existed, particularly with respect to ethnic policies?
