Britain's multiculturalism

The review of Bruce Feiler's book ``Looking for Class: Seeking Wisdom and Romance at Oxford and Cambridge,'' Nov. 15, refers to parallels between Britain and Japan that are not valid. During the second half of the 20th century, Britain established a pattern of racial integration (including the immigration of many Asians in the 1960s and '70s) that is considerably broader than most other European nations. Racial tension does exist in parts of Britain's larger cities and the racist views of the far right need to be firmly denounced. Yet mainland Britain remains one of today's most tolerant multicultural societies. Alistair Budd, Rolle, Switzerland
