Kinship and Continuity is a vivid ethnographic account of the development of the Pakistani presence in Oxford, from after World War II to the present day. Alison Shaw addresses the dynamics of migration, patterns of residence and kinship, ideas about health and illness, and notions of political and religious authority, and discusses the transformations and continuities of the lives of British Pakistanis against the backdrop of rural Pakistan and local socio-economic changes. This is a fully updated, revised edition of the book first published in 1988.

Although there has emerged a huge interest in the Muslim communities in Britain since 9/11 and 7/7, few academic studies have focused on the political processes within Muslim communities and the impacts these have on civic engagement. This book examines the political biographies and religious identities of British Muslims of Pakistani descent.

Drawing on fieldwork with British Pakistani clients of a UK genetics service, this book explores the personal and social implications of a 'genetic diagnosis'. Through case material and comparative discussion, the book identifies practical ethical dilemmas raised by new genetic knowledge and shows how, while being shaped by culture, these issues also cross-cut differences of culture, religion and ethnicity. The book also demonstrates how identifying a population-level elevated 'risk' of genetic disorders in an ethnic minority population can reinforce existing social divisions and cultural stereotypes. The book addresses questions about the relationship between genetic risk and clinical practice that will be relevant to health workers and policy makers.

The Britain of the early twenty-first century has become consumed by heightened concerns about violent crime as well as terrorism. Muslim men, and Muslim communities more widely, seem particularly susceptible to negative stereotyping, at the same time that many media accounts focus on alleged ‘dysfunctionalities’ of certain groups. However, little is known about the complex relations between ethnicity and criminality; knowledge held by minority ethnic groups on these matters is still much overlooked, and academic criminological accounts tend to neglect minorities’ views and their cultural specificities. _x000D_ _x000D_ Here Marta Bolognani fills a major gap in criminology and diaspora studies through an exhaustive cross-generational and cross-gender investigation into crime among British Pakistanis. Avoiding ill-fitting generalisations and stereotypes, she analyses Bradford Pakistanis’ perceptions of crime and its production, construction, sanctioning and prevention. These perceptions are analyzed in their specific reality, rather than by imposing abstract, universal categories. She also examines local and national state policies that are geared to preventing crime as well as people’s responses to them. In so doing, she shows us how crime comes to be understood by participants as well as institutional actors, and offers a counterpoint to the ‘taboo’ of talking about crime and race in cultural terms. _x000D_ _x000D_ Through detailed ethnographic observation and interview data, Bolognani shows how Bradford Pakistanis’ perceptions of crime and control are a combination of the formal and informal, or British and ‘traditional’ Pakistani, that are no longer separable in the diasporic context. Bradford Pakistanis engage with mainstream criminological and policy discourses in a way that reflects the position of their diaspora: ‘community’ for them includes their traditional structures but also all the intra-communal and inter-communal relations that are meaningful, as resources and as constraints. ‘Crime in Muslim Britain’ is essential for all those interested in criminology, ethnicity and the predicaments of Muslim communities today._x000D_ _x000D_

This study, which breaks new ground in urban research, is a comprehensive and definitive account of one of the many communities of South Asians to emerge throughout the Western industrial world since the Second World War - the British Pakistanis in Manchester. This book examines the cultural dimensions of immigrant entrepreneurship and the formation of an ethnic enclave community, and explores the structure and theory of urban ritual and its place within the immigrant gift economy.

Multi-Ethnic Britain 2000+ provides an encompassing survey of artistic responses to the changes in the British cultural climate in the early years of the 21st century. It traces topical reactions to new forms of racism and religious fundamentalism, to legal as well as `illegal¿ immigration, and to the threat of global terror; yet it also highlights new forms of intercultural communication and convivial exchange. Framed by contributions from novelists Patrick Neate and Rajeev Balasubramanyam, Multi-Ethnic Britain 2000+ showcases how artistic representations in literature, film, music and the visual arts reflect and respond to social and political discourses, and how they contribute to our understanding of the current (trans)cultural situation in Britain. The contributions in this volume cover a wide range of writers such as Graham Swift, Ian McEwan, Zadie Smith, Jackie Kay, Nadeem Aslam, Gautam Malkani, Nirpal Dhaliwal and Monica Ali; films ranging from Gurinder Chadha¿s Bend It Like Beckham and Bride and Prejudice to Michael Winterbottom¿s In This World and Alfonso Cuarón¿s Children of Men; paintings and photography by innovative black and Asian British Artists; and dubstep music.

Providing empirical evidence on the lives of young British-born Pakistanis, The New British also reveals fascinating insights into the Pakistani community more generally. Using Bradford as a case study, Ikhlaq Din focuses on the relationship between young boys and girls, their parents, and the Pakistani community. He discusses various issues that are important to young people, such as: their experience of school; their aspirations; their identity; their attitude to community; their relationships with parents; the tensions between Islam and popular culture and the role Islam plays in the wider Pakistani community. The impact of broader national and international events such as 9/11 and 7/7 on the lives of young British-born Pakistanis is also considered.
