The Impact of Immigration is a documentary history of immigration into post-War Britain by one of the leading historians in the field.

Using a wide range of official and unoffficial documents, it introduces students to immigrants, their impact, and reactions towards them in post-War Britain.

The book divides into five sections, following an introductory essay by the author. The first uses a wide range of documentation to illustrate the reasons for migration, demonstrating both the structural and personal reasons. Attention also focuses upon the social and economic life of the immigrants, demonstrating that while some have found economic success, others have remained underprivileged. All immigrants have tried to maintain their ethnicity especially through language, religion, politics and culture. Similarly, all immigrants have faced varying types of hostility from both the state and individual native Britons. Finally, immigrants have had a significant impact on post-War Britain.

The book will have a wide appeal for sixth form and undergraduate students, as well as the general reader.
