The past century s culture wars that Britain has been consumed by but that few North Americans seem aware of have resulted in revised notions of Britishness and British literature Yet literary anthologies remain anchored to an archaic Anglo English interpretation of British literature Conflicts have been played out over specific national vs British identity some residents prefer to describe themselves as being from Scotland England Wales or Northern Ireland instead of Britain in debates over immigration race ethnicity class and gender and in arguments over British literature These debates are strikingly detailed in such chapters as The Difficulty Defining Black British British Jewish Writers and Xenophobia and the Booker Prize Connections are also drawn between civil rights movements in the U S and UK This generalist cultural study is a lively read and a fascinating glimpse into Britain s changing identity as reflected in th and st century British literature br br Reviews br Tracy Prince s book brings an impressive set of voices into dialogue on the complexity of community building and national identity analyzing important aspects of British culture which are not fully represented in anthologies or literary histories br R Victoria Arana Professor of English Howard University br br Writing with great lucidity and welcome originality Tracy J Prince explores how an increasingly multicultural Britain defines itself and is defined through literature and a literary establishment still dominated by an Anglo English elite br Tamar Heller Associate Professor of English amp Comparative Literature University of Cincinnati br br It is precisely in its analysis of this Anglo centeredness and its sensitive treatment of the many other voices that comprise modern British writing that this book s strength lies We have no hesitation in recommending Culture Wars in British Literature to anyone with an interest in the complexities of modern British culture and in particular the difficulty of establishing a separate and distinct Anglo Welsh identity within the mainstream br Ceri Shaw AmeriCymru s Welsh Magazine br br About the Author br Tracy J Prince is a Scholar in Residence at Portland State University s Portland Center for Public Humanities in Oregon She has spent her career teaching and writing about race gender and social equity issues and has taught in or spent extensive research time in Turkey Australia England Canada and throughout the United States


Is Multiculturalism Bad for Women?

Polygamy forced marriage female genital mutilation punishing women for being raped differential access for men and women to health care and education unequal rights of ownership assembly and political participation unequal vulnerability to violence These practices and conditions are standard in some parts of the world Do demands for multiculturalism and certain minority group rights in particular make them more likely to continue and to spread to liberal democracies Are there fundamental conflicts between our commitment to gender equity and our increasing desire to respect the customs of minority cultures or religions In this book the eminent feminist Susan Moller Okin and fifteen of the world s leading thinkers about feminism and multiculturalism explore these unsettling questions in a provocative passionate and illuminating debate br br Okin opens by arguing that some group rights can in fact endanger women She points for example to the French government s giving thousands of male immigrants special permission to bring multiple wives into the country despite French laws against polygamy and the wives own bitter opposition to the practice Okin argues that if we agree that women should not be disadvantaged because of their sex we should not accept group rights that permit oppressive practices on the grounds that they are fundamental to minority cultures whose existence may otherwise be threatened br br In reply some respondents reject Okin s position outright contending that her views are rooted in a moral universalism that is blind to cultural difference Others quarrel with Okin s focus on gender or argue that we should be careful about which group rights we permit but not reject the category of group rights altogether Okin concludes with a rebuttal clarifying adjusting and extending her original position These incisive and accessible essays expanded from their original publication in i Boston Review i and including four new contributions are indispensable reading for anyone interested in one of the most contentious social and political issues today br br The diverse contributors in addition to Okin are a href https www goodreads com author show Azizah al Hibri title Azizah al Hibri rel nofollow Azizah al Hibri a a href https www goodreads com author show Abdullahi An Na im title Abdullahi An Na im rel nofollow Abdullahi An Na im a a href https www goodreads com author show Homi Bhabha title Homi Bhabha rel nofollow Homi Bhabha a a href https www goodreads com author show Sander Gilman title Sander Gilman rel nofollow Sander Gilman a Janet Halley a href https www goodreads com author show Bonnie Honig title Bonnie Honig rel nofollow Bonnie Honig a a href https www goodreads com author show Will Kymlicka title Will Kymlicka rel nofollow Will Kymlicka a a href https www goodreads com author show Martha Nussbaum title Martha Nussbaum rel nofollow Martha Nussbaum a a href https www goodreads com author show Bhikhu Parekh title Bhikhu Parekh rel nofollow Bhikhu Parekh a a href https www goodreads com author show Katha Pollitt title Katha Pollitt rel nofollow Katha Pollitt a a href https www goodreads com author show Robert Post title Robert Post rel nofollow Robert Post a a href https www goodreads com author show Joseph Raz title Joseph Raz rel nofollow Joseph Raz a a href https www goodreads com author show Saskia Sassen title Saskia Sassen rel nofollow Saskia Sassen a a href https www goodreads com author show Cass Sunstein title Cass Sunstein rel nofollow Cass Sunstein a and a href https www goodreads com author show Yael Tamir title Yael Tamir rel nofollow Yael Tamir a
