Example text

In saying that assimilation, if achievable, is the most ‘effective’ means of integration for the dominant culture, I am not, it should be clear, endorsing or approving it. Rather, I want simply to point to the fact, and I take it to be a fact, that the more a culture is shared, the easier it is to presuppose that culture is the unspoken and often invisible background to the way in which social institutions and practices operate.

The difficulty is, as the quote from Parekh makes clear, that the value of culture seems to depend, in part at least, on its being non-voluntary, and detachment or exit being difficult and probably costly.
