Reviews for The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe: A History

Chin has produced a well-researched and readable study of policies toward immigrant communities in Great Britain, France, and, to a lesser extent, Germany, from immediately after WWII to the present. --Publishers Weekly A lucid and erudite overview of the debate. --Malise Ruthven, Financial Times Lucidly written and resourcefully argued, [this book] is a superb example of a scholarly intervention in a public debate dominated by unexamined prejudice. --Pankaj Mishra, New York Times Book Review Chin analyzes the current debates in Europe over immigration and Western values to create a vivid picture of a continent consumed by social tensions. The questions [she] poses have never seemed more urgent. --Radhika Jones, New York Times Book Review
