Why is there so much resistance to recent issues of tolerance and diversity? Despite efforts of the international community to encourage open-mindedness, recent attempts at international, political and economic integration have shown that religious, cultural and ethnic tolerance and diversity remain under threat. The contributions in the volume reflect the growing importance of these issues and why resistance is so widespread. Part I addresses the relationship between the language of law and its power, whilst Part II explores the interplay of tolerance and diversity under visual, legislative and interpretative perspectives. The collection as a whole offers a combination of varied perspectives on the analysis, application and exploitation of laws.Wagner, Anne is the author of 'Diversity and Tolerance in Socio-Legal Contexts', published 2009 under ISBN 9780754673866 and ISBN 0754673863.
