(p.1) Introduction
Class, ethnicity and religion in the Bengali East End

Sarah Glynn

Manchester University Press

This summarises the nature of the book and what makes it unique, and outlines its main argument. It explains that the book serves as a critique of the cultural turn and of identity politics, and a call for a return to more materialist understandings as a basis for addressing socio-economic inequality. It looks at ideas about racialisation, and includes an explanation of the book’s use of key terms, including ‘working class’.

Keywords:   identity politics, Marxist materialism, socio-economic inequality, racialisation, divide and rule, multiculturalism, working class
