dc.description.abstractThe diversity and complexity of British Asian life is plain for all to see and has been celebrated in literature, poetry and film, not to mention performing arts and music. Till now, however, an accessibly written introductory volume on the South Asian presence has been absent from our bookshelves. A Postcolonial People is an innovative and intriguing blend of scholarship and reportage on the multi-faceted experience of British Asians covering everything from discrimination to bhangra, Bradford to chicken tikka, Asian Britsih cultural landscapes to arranged marriages. Eschewing both anthropological approaches and overtly theoretical analyses, the contributors map out the heterodox impact of British Asians on the United Kingdom, detailing their achievement and setbacks, points of intersection and divergence as a postcolonial people and everyday lives.
