From the cover: “Britain’s ethnic minorities are here to slay. Many of them have their own mother-cultures and mother-tongues; some regard themselves us only provisionally British: all present a novel challenge, both to the process of British politics, and to the institutions of British society. For many years it has been impossible to write frankly about the problems of the multiethnic society — in particular the problems which are daily confronted in our schools — without deferring to the “anti-racists’, who have maintained such vigilant supervision of the state educational system as effectively t<> prevent teachers from speaking their minds. At last, however, (heir power is on the wane, thanks partly to Ray Honeyford, whose original article in The Salisbury Review dared to raise the questions which had been for a decade or more on the minds of many citizens, Mr Honeyford was hounded from his job as Headmaster of a Bradford middle school, and has devoted his retirement to writing at length on this, the most important and the least discussed social issue of our day. His book presents a direct and forceful challenge to the bureaucrats, arguing against ‘multi-cultural education’ in favour of integration, as the sole reasonable solution to a problem which can only be exacerbated by the paid propagandists of ‘anti-racism’. The book includes a scathing dismissal of the Swann Report, and a defence of British society as embodying the values of tolerance and fair play — values of which, in recent controversies, the ‘anti-racists’ have shown little appreciation. This book, the first open-minded survey of the problem-of multi-ethnic schooling, will console far more people than it shocks, and will instruct whoever reads it.”
