This timely report sets out a much-needed and comprehensive evidence base for understanding the dispersal and key characteristics of immigrant communities in the UK since 1990.
Taking an innovative approach to mapping recent immigration, Beyond Black and White analyses the distribution and socio-economic profiles of immigrants by country of birth. It also compares the performance of new immigrants over time and across UK regions. The focus on new immigrants allows useful comparisons with older patterns of immigration.
Sarah Kyambi's analysis authoritatively challenges common assumptions on the origins, characteristics and economic performance of immigrants to the UK.
With over 100 full colour maps showing the dispersal of immigrant communities, this volume provides an indispensable guide for anyone interested in immigration and integration issues.
