British Asian life is diverse and complex and has been celebrated in works of literature, poetry, and film, not to mention the performing arts and music. A Postcolonial People is an innovative and intriguing combination of scholarship and personal narrative detailing the multifaceted experience of British Asians. It covers a wide range of topics, from the evolution of cuisine, pop music, dance, and the tradition of arranged marriages to the discrimination still practiced against Asians and their role in shaping the British cultural landscape. Eschewing both anthropological approaches and overtly theoretical analyses, contributors map out the heterodox impact of British Asians on the United Kingdom, describing achievements and setbacks, points of intersection and divergence, and the everyday struggles of a postcolonial people.
