Professor Tariq Modood has a new book out: Multiculturalism: A Civic Idea, is published this week. He is a defender of government-led multiculturalism of course, but in his latest book he goes further and says that perhaps ‘Britishness’, i.e. a national identity, is a good idea. An article in the Guardian yesterday was a bit short.
You can read an extended version on openDemocracy.net. They asked me to write a 500-word reponse to Prof. Modood’s article, which you can read here. That page also has responses by other well known commentators.
