Identities, discourses and experiences

Young people of North African origin in France

Nadia Kiwan

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The only book on this subject offering such an extensive degree of empirical work As an Anglophone book dealing with Francophone studies, appeals to a broader European sociology market as well as to the target Francophone Studies market Provides a much-needed 'French' input into the field of transnational studies, which remains dominated by Anglo-American intellectual paradigms Invites a renewed understanding of identity construction by integrating social and cultural analysis and by rejecting the familiar binary oppositions of the last two decades: integration vs ghettoisation; multiculturalism vs universalism; tradition vs modernity Contributes to academic and public debates in both Britain and France on the increasingly important questions of youth, citizenship, the place of Islam and secularism
