During the last twenty years, ethnic diversity has become a distinct feature of all Western industrialized societies. The cultural, political and social implications of this development are discussed within the conceptual framework of "multiculturalism". This essay collection tries not only to analyse the constituents of multi-ethnic communities, but also to open up perspectives for intercultural and transcultural communication.
