THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION: a documentary history of the effects and experiences of immigrants in Britain since 1945. By Panikos Panayi. Manchester. University Press. Documents in Contemporary History pound;12.99

This collection of source documents deals with the reasons for immigration, the social and economic position of the newcomers, ethnic reactions to the trauma of moving, a chilling selection on racism and a (more optimistic) selection on the growing multiracialism in British society today.
