London’s Newcomers

The West Indian Migrants

Ruth Glass

ISBN 9780674538504

Publication date: 01/01/1961

Here is the first full, critical investigation of the extent to which West Indians are being accepted in England, and in particular in London where so many of them live. It analyzes the emigrants' West Indian backgrounds, their London experience, and the difficulties they face, and shows that color prejudice is far more prevalent in Britain than is generally acknowledged. The author follows developments from the disturbances of autumn 1957 until spring 1960, demonstrates the urgency of problems of mutual adjustment between the new minority group and the host society, and makes proposals for their solution.
