(i) Characteristics of Diverse Neighbourhoods:- This research unequivocally shows that Moss Side and North Tottenham are ethnically diverse places with a variety of races and peoples of different gender orientation, religious affiliations and economic statuses. Hudon et al (2007) point out that the neighbourhoods covered in this research have British whites, Irish whites, Africans, Caribbean, Asians and other people of different cultural origins. Can they ever co-exist in peace? Is diversity truly a divisive phenomenon? Can the local authorities ever achieve a condition of true cohesion among people of different races and colours? The other parts of this criticism strive to provide answers to these enigmatic questions.
