"In Western European politics, "the end of multiculturalism" has become a dogma. Here is finally a book that reopens the debate by distinguishing between political rhetoric, public opinion and public policies." - Rainer Bauböck, European University Institute, Florence
"Orchestrated predictions about "the end of multiculturalism" are shown, in this alert but finely-tuned collection, as emanating from a panic choir without a common score. Judiciously choosing seven European and two Canadian contrasts, it shows this empirically and deepens it theoretically." - Gerd Baumann, University of Amsterdam
