Class, Ethnicity and Religion in the Bengali East End

A Political History

Sarah Glynn

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Will appeal to both an academic and a general readership. It is written in a clear style, it does not rely on prior knowledge, it relates a remarkable history - and it uses that history to explore and illuminate a strong theoretical argument
  • Makes an original theoretical and empirical contribution to the academic literature on immigrant political mobilisation, providing a developed Marxist critique of established liberal and post-modern understandings
  • Provides an accessible account - introducing a different perspective - that can be used in undergraduate courses in sociology, history, geography and politics
  • Will appeal to those interested in the history of the Bengalis in Britain, in immigrant politics and in the organisation and tactics of the progressive left
