A Postcolonial People is a lively and critical survey of contemporary South Asian Britain. Filling a conspicuous gap in the literature, this specially commissioned book combines conceptually innovative analysis with empirically rich studies to map out the diversity of British Asian ways of life. The migration and settlement of South Asians in Britain is examined in the context of the postcolonial condition, in which boundaries between the West and Rest, centre and periphery, home and abroad are increasingly blurred. The contributors provide both fresh perspectives and vital information on Asian British experiences in their socio-economic, historical and cultural dimensions. The topics covered include: identity, employment, music, health British Asian theatre, the transformation of urban space, policing, electoral politics, and cinema.
