Multilingual Identities in a Global City: London Stories is an in-depth study of the linguistic, national, ethnic, social class and gendered identities of individuals living in London at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The book begins with a thorough discussion of key concepts such as globalization, migration, multiculturalism, identity, the global city and the history of migration to Britain and London. Through a detailed examination of four diverse groups - East Asian graduate students, French foreign language teachers, Spanish-speaking Latinos and second generation British Asian university students - it explores the ambivalent and multi-layered identities of individuals who have crossed geographical and psychological borders during the course of their lifetimes.
