The globalization of trade and increasing international travel and migration poses huge challenges for health practitioners and policy makers who have to meet legal and policy obligations to provide health care of equal quality and effectiveness for all.Migration, Ethnicity, Race, and Health in Multicultural Societies provides an accessible introduction to the complex issues of race, ethnicity and minority populations. The book explains the process of migration and the uses and misuses of the key concepts of race and ethnicity, illustrating their strengths and weaknesses in epidemiology, policy making, health service planning, research, health care and health promotion. Including many examples from around the world to demonstrate the theory in a practical way, and written in a clear and straightforward style with all terminology explained, this is an ideal book for all students and professionals in the field of migration, ethnicity and race in the health care context. "Bhopal's important and comprehensive Ethnicity, Race, and Health in Multicultural Societies challenges us to achieve better health for ethnic minority populations... provides critical and thought-provoking insights into public health research and clinical practice with multi-ethnic populations." - The Lancet"Professor Bhopal has produced an invaluable addition to the growing mountain of resources on ethnicity and health...One of the greatest merits of this text is that it is written by someone who has been involved in high-quality research on ethnicity and health in many contexts and for many years. The author therefore is able to draw upon first-hand experience or research with which he has been associated, as well as providing examples from other key players in the field." - Diversityin Health and Social Care

Bhopals concepts and points of view are well thought out and researched. The concepts and frameworks are well described and easily applied to different settings in health. This book would be useful for any health professional involved in public health or those wanting a greater understanding of the impact of migration, race and ethnicity in the ever-changing context of health care. It would also be a valuable addition to any health school library or a valuable toolfor anyone wishing to gain more understanding on the implication of migration ethnicity and race on health service delivery.
I recommend this book to students, practitioners and managers. It is an excellent resource, with a useful glossary, bibliography and links to ethnicity and health websites.
