Blurb/Shorttext:
Taking a probing look at the British political and public scenes from 1945 up to 2000, one may notice the recurrent image of Britain facing a double threat: the presence of black immigrants and later black British people on the one hand, and Britain's participation in the European integration project on the other. Accordingly, this book sheds lights on the shared images, discourses and policies of the threat that stigmatized the black immigrants and later black British people as the 'enemies within' jeopardizing Britain’s national identity while casting the schemes for European integration as the 'enemies without’ endangering its national sovereignty. The book goes beyond tracing similarities to scrutinize the rationales of such complex relations between Britain, its black immigrants, and its European neighbours; a scrutiny that explores the roles of the other in the nation-making processes and delves into the realities of changes brought about by post-war period. This work invites its readers to take a more holistic approach in addressing the intricate questions of immigration, multiculturalism, national identity, and European integration in relation to Britain.
