This title was first published in 2001: Using detailed international research, this volume explores the background, current position and key features of minority communities living within multi cultural societies. Focusing particularly upon family life, the contributors investigate minorities ranging from the Old Order Mennonites and Cree and Ojibway Aboriginals in Canada, to conservative Christians in the USA, Afrikaners in South Africa and Pakistanis in the UK. The chapters demonstrate that while each of these communities is distinctive in terms of history, culture, religion and family behaviour, they all share an ability to retain and nourish their separate identity. The book thus provides fascinating insights into the lives of minority families and draws important conclusions surrounding the ways in which they keep themselves separate from, while still participating in, society as a whole.
