Multiculturalism's Double Bind: Creating Inclusivity, Cosmopolitanism and Difference

Ashgate, 2009 - 197 頁
"This book challenges the perceived wisdom that multiculturalism counteracts the opportunity for groups to move beyond their particularized constituency to build links and networks with other 'minority' groups, proffering a sophisticated analysis of how state-sponsored multiculturalism operates. In a thorough discussion of cosmopolitanism, the commodification of culture and the role of second and third generation migrants, it draws upon empirical data from around the world, closely considering the experience of the Irish and the manner in which 'Irishness', in addition to other ethnicities, was rendered inclusive. As such, it presents and innovative examination of the ways in which the mobilization for recognition within state-sponsored multicultural frameworks can shape the cultural identity of minority groups, as well as engendering cosmopolitan identities and cross-community political engagement."--BOOK JACKET.
