      Abstract:

      Opening with a discussion of the key issues of globalization,
      migration, multiculturalism, multilingualism and global cities, David
      Block then turns to four detailed case studies: East Asian students
      living and working in London; foreign language teachers from France;
      London's growing Latino community; and second generation South Asian
      university students. Via these case studies the book explores the
      ambivalent and multi-layered identities of individuals who have
      crossed geographical and psychological borders during the course of
      their lifetimes and settled in London, the quintessential global city.
