The Angry East End

The March issue of Prospect Magazine contained a useful overview of the New East End: Kinship, Race and Conflict, the recent publication from the Young Foundation that "explores 50 years of social change in Tower Hamlets". Written by the book's authors Kate Gavron and Rushanara Ali, it serves to highlight the importance of this major study of the dysfunctional impact of the Welfare State.
