This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about ethnic differences and disadvantage in Great Britain. The book considers the patterning of ethnic disadvantage in a number of key areas of social life and describes the demographic characteristics of people from minority ethnic groups. The discussion in each chapter is framed by analyses of continuity and change, with particular emphasis on the persistence of ethnic penalties and evidence of continued discrimination, even in the face of upward mobility.
