Multiculturalism's Double-Bind: Creating Inclusivity, Cosmopolitanism and Difference

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Dec 28, 2012 - Social Science - 208 pages

Using a rich array of ethnographic and archival data closely considering the Irish and the manner in which ‘Irishness’ was rendered inclusive, Multiculturalism's Double Bind demonstrates that multiculturalism can encourage cross-community political engagement in the global city.

This book challenges the perceived wisdom that multiculturalism counteracts the opportunity for groups to move beyond their particularized constituency to build links and networks with other 'minority' groups.

Theoretically informed and empirically grounded this volume will appeal to scholars across a range of disciplines, including migration and ethnicity, social and cultural anthropology, Irish studies and sociology.
