If, as W. E. B. Du Bois observed, the problem of the twentieth century was the problem of the color line, the problem of the twenty-first century may be one that reaches back to premodernity: religious identity. Even before 9/11 it was becoming evident that Muslims, not blacks, were perceived as the "other" most threatening to Western society, even in a relatively pluralist nation such as Britain. In Multcultural Politics, one of the most respected thinkers on ethnic minority experience in England describes how what began as a black-white division has been complicated by cultural racism, Islamophobia, and a challenge to secular modernity. Tariq Modood explores the tensions that have risen among advocates of multiculturalism as Muslims assert themselves to catch up with existing equality agendas while challenging some of the secularist, liberal, and feminist assumptions of multiculturalists. If an Islam-West divide is to be avoided in our time, Modood suggests, then Britain, with its relatively successful ethnic pluralism and its easygoing attitude toward religion, will provide a particularly revealing case and promising site for understanding.

Review:

Tariq Modood has been the leading British Muslim voice in debates around national identity, racism, ethnicity, multiculturalism and citizenship over the last decade, and his new volume, Multicultural Politics, showcases a felicitous blend of theoretical insight, policy-oriented practicality, and subversive common sense. One of the most respected thinkers on ethnic minority experiences in Britain. His book offers hope for British and pluralistic educators worldwide. Since the Salman Rushdie affair in 1989, Tariq Modood has established himself as one of the foremost commentators on minority ethnic affairs in Britain. Multicultural Politics is a very welcome and timely collection of selections from his work, 1990-2003. ... Multicultural Politics is an important book and unlike anything else currently available. -- Sean McLoughlin, University of Leeds Over the years Tariq Modood has emerged as one of the foremost theorists of British multiculturalism. His writings are marked by penetrating theoretical insights and good practical sense. These virtues are fully on display in this splendid book. -- Professor Lord Bhikhu Parekh Tariq Modood has been the leading British Muslim voice in debates around national identity, racism, ethnicity, multiculturalism and citizenship over the last decade, and his new volume, Multicultural Politics, showcases a felicitous blend of theoretical insight, policy-oriented practicality, and subversive common sense.
