Multiculturalism Rethought

Interpretations, Dilemmas and New Directions

Edited by Varun Uberoi and Tariq Modood


The book explores contemporary multicultural dilemmas through the lens of Bhikhu Parekh's political thought, whose work is widely regarded as amongst the most original and significant contributions to the political theory of multiculturalism. In this book, a selection of leading theorists of multiculturalism revisit aspects of Parekh's work both to underline its continuing importance and the ongoing vitality of multiculturalist theory. Some contributors locate Parekh in the tradition of British pluralism or as inspired by Gandhi; some apply his theory to a range of controversial contemporary multicultural dilemmas; and others extend it in new directions.
