Abstract:

"Shield's timely and hugely important work takes fresh perspectives on immigration to Northwest Europe from Turkey, Morocco and Pakistan in particular. Rather than seeing a homogenised threat or groups of passive victims, he shows how immigrants have responded to changing cultures of gender and sexuality in multiple ways. The book does something genuinely new and comes as a nuanced and carefully argued counter to the poisonous rhetoric of right-wing nationalists in Europe and beyond."--Matt Cook, Birkbeck, University of London, UK 'This is a remarkable book. With a multitude of sources, Andrew DJ Shield welds together the history of late twentieth-century immigration to Denmark and the Netherlands and presents it from the immigrants' viewpoint. An astute scholarly work, which effectively refutes some of the most common xenophobic and populist claims of our time, the book has relevance for how we understand cross-cultural experiences everywhere.' - Jens Rydström, Lund University, Sweden 'We tend to forget how solidarity and social cohesion were constructed in past decades. This is a must-read for journalists, policy makers and academics.' - Marlou Schrover, Leiden University, The Netherlands.
