It starts by asking students to consider whether the topic of immigration is controversial in itself before looking at a history of immigration and settlers who came to Britain before the twentieth century. It then goes on to look at early twentieth century immigration and how the Aliens Act of 1919 had an impact on the level of immigration in the inter-war years. The rest of the focus of the book is the history of immigration after the Second World War, in particular: - the arrival of West Indian immigrants in the 1950s and 1960s and some of the tensions surrounding this - the experience of immigrants in the latter part of the century - the impact immigration has had on British society. The book finishes by asking the students to think about and debate whether or not immigration should be stopped.
