Ethnic Minorities in the Inner City; The Ethnic Dimension in Urban Deprivation in England.
The aim of the investigation reported in this volume was to examine the social needs of ethnic minority residents of urban areas, determine the extent to which they are similar to or are different from those of their indigenous counterparts in these areas, and explore the implications of these similarities and differences for the regeneration of the quality of life in the inner city. In the course of carrying out this aim, this volume describes the social disadvantages which ethnic minority communities experience in Housing, Education, the Social Services, Youth and Community facilities and their concentration among the deprived/disadvantaged population. It also describes the existence of special patterns of multiple disadvantages which affects them as well as the existence of special needs which derive partly from their newness to this society and partly from their cultural backgrounds.
