This engaging book addresses the question of how diverse communities, whether in a nation, city or organization, can live together and prosper whilst retaining and enjoying their cultural differences. This is a particularly pertinent issue in the context of the modern world where mass migration and immigration are pervasive global phenomena.

‘In the global context of mass migration, this book is a timely and valuable contribution to urban policy and organization studies. . . Recommended’
– D.A. Chekki, Choice

‘This is a very useful book on a very important subject. The preservation of the rich and diverse body of cultures that history and continued diversity provide is of great significance for humanity and the welfare of society. The failure to appreciate, and even to hate other cultures, is surely a threat to world peace and civilization. I particularly value the chapters that focus on policy and provide evidence indicating what policy approaches are effective and which are not.’
– William J. Baumol, New York University and Princeton University, US
