Multiculturalism as a distinct form of liberal-democratic governance gained widespread acceptance after World War II, but in recent years this consensus has been fractured. Multiculturalism in the British Commonwealth examines cultural diversity across the postwar Commonwealth, situating modern multiculturalism in its national, international, and historical contexts. Bringing together practitioners from across the humanities and social sciences to explore the legal, political, and philosophical issues involved, these essays address common questions: What is postwar multiculturalism? Why did it come about? How have social actors responded to it? In addition to chapters on Australia, Britain, Canada, and New Zealand, this volume also covers India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Singapore, and Trinidad, tracing the historical roots of contemporary dilemmas back to the intertwined legacies of imperialism and liberalism. In so doing it demonstrates that multiculturalism has implications that stretch far beyond its current formulations in public and academic discourse.

      "This volume makes a significant contribution to history and politics of cross-national multiculturalism within the English-speaking world. All of the chapters offer original perspectives, and while there are numerous edited volumes concerned with the politics of multiculturalism, no other specifically focuses upon the Commonwealth and in a manner that includes history, politics, and law. I expect this book to quickly become a principal text."--Andrew Fagan, author of Human Rights and Cultural Diversity

      "Ashcroft and Bevir have put together an excellent collection of essays by a first-rate group of scholars. This book provides invaluable historical context to a debate that has been central to contemporary political philosophy for several decades and that remains a crucial political challenge for governments around the world. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in the challenges posed by cultural and national identity to liberal democratic states."--Phil Parvin, author of Karl Popper
