This chapter provides an insight into both Britain and Germany's immigration policies in the post-war era. It stresses the vast differences in the thinking behind Britain's relatively liberal (albeit constrained after 1962) immigration policy and West Germany's rigid guest-worker rotation system. It then introduces the Muslim immigrant communities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Bremen, explaining the rationale for choosing these two cities as case studies. Lastly, it discusses the sources used and the methodology adopted.
