A Postcolonial People is a lively, critical survey of contemporary South Asian Britain that fills a conspicuous gap in the literature. This specially commissioned book combines conceptually innovative analysis with empirically rich studies to map out the diversity of the British Asian way of life.5/5(1). Post-Colonial Studies: The Key Concepts is fully updated and cross-referenced additional further reading this book has everything necessary for students and anyone keen to learn more about this fascinating subject.
