Immigration is likely to feature as a key issue in the next generation election campaign and those UK citizens whose parents and grandparents emigrated here are likely to prove a pivotal influence on the final result. Derek Laud is an example of someone who has succeeded in Britain despite many initial setbacks. In this book he seeks to find out why there remains a glass ceiling on the aspirations and achievements of certain ethnic minorities and marginalised segments of British society and why the economic ascent of certain minority groups continues to rise unabated. In this book Laud sets out on a similar journey to identify the achievements and disappointments shared by the successive waves of immigrants who have relocated here since World War II. In doing so, he highlights the widespread misconceptions about those who have chosen to live here or who were born here to immigrant parents. He tackle the hurdles which need to be removed barring success and he concludes by outlining his own personal journey and motivational vision of what a vibrant multicultural Britain at ease with itself could look like - affording enhanced educational and employment options and opportunities for increased innovation, productivity and economic growth within our lifetime.
