Jonathan Chaplin's book, Faith in Democracy: Framing a Politics of Deep Diversity SCM Press 2021, provides an analysis of British social policy in terms of the diverse voices within British society. Of special interest is his concern to encourage all citizens, including the growing British Muslim community, to develop their own (Muslim) democratic voice.
