Multiculturalism Reconsidered

Paul Kelly (ed)
Polity Press (12 October 2002)

Can multiculturalists be egalitarians and should egalitarians be multiculturalists? Is the absence of cultural recognition an injustice in the same way as the absence of individual rights or basic resources?
This book examines Brian Barry's thesis that egalitarians cannot be multiculturalists. Drawing on an international cast from Britain, the USA, Canada and Australia, it ranges over the issues raised by multiculturalism and egalitarianism and puts Barry's challenge to multiculturalism to the test.
