New book: The Politics of Social Cohesion by Nils Holtug

In The Politics of Social Cohesion, Holtug gives a careful assessment of the impact of immigration on social cohesion and egalitarian redistribution. He argues that the effects of immigration on social cohesion do not need to compromise social justice, and that core principles of liberty and equality not only form the normative basis for just policies of immigration and integration but, as a matter of empirical fact, are also the values that, if shared, are most likely to produce the social cohesion among community members that provides the social basis for implementing justice.
