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.

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.

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.

Lahore. In einem Café sitzen sich ein mitteilsamer Pakistani und ein zurückhaltender Amerikaner gegenüber. Als langsam die Nacht über die Stadt hereinbricht, enthüllt der Pakistani immer mehr Details seiner Lebensgeschichte. Changez heißt er, und er erzählt, wie er als junger, ehrgeiziger Gaststudent nach Princeton kommt. Als Vorzeigestudent wird er nach seinem Abschluss sofort von einer Elite-Firma engagiert. Er stürzt sich ins pulsierende Leben New Yorks, erhält durch seine reiche Freundin Erica Zugang zu Manhattans High Society und wähnt sich auf der Seite der Gewinner. Aber nach dem 11. September fällt sein amerikanischer Traum vom unaufhaltsamen Aufstieg langsam in sich zusammen. Plötzlich erscheint Changez die Bindung an seine Heimat wichtiger als Geld, Macht und Erfolg. All dies berichtet der Pakistani dem Amerikaner, dessen Motivation an dem Gespräch im Dunkeln bleibt. Allein im Spiegel des Erzählers zeichnet sich ab, dass der grausame Höhepunkt der Geschichte kurz bevorsteht.

Wenn ein Leben nur in der Lüge möglich ist In dem Moment, als auf der Grand Trunk Road Schüsse zu hören sind, beginnt Nargis' Leben zu zerbrechen. Ihr Ehemann gelangt versehentlich ins Kreuzfeuer und stirbt, bevor sie ihm die Wahrheit über ihre Vergangenheit beichten kann. Schon seit Längerem fürchtet sie, dass diese bald ans Licht kommen wird: Ein Unbekannter verkündet regelmäßig Geheimnisse der Anwohner vom Minarett der örtlichen Moscheen und versetzt damit Muslime und Christen gleichermaßen in Angst. Als die Lautsprecher die verbotene Liaison ihres Nachbarn mit der Tochter des muslimischen Geistlichen aufdecken, sind die Einschläge so nah, dass Nargis handeln muss ... In der für ihn typischen leuchtenden Prosa erzählt Nadeem Aslam eine Geschichte über Fanatismus, Widerstandsvermögen und die Lügen, die manchmal nötig sind, um zu überleben. Ein mutiger, zeitgemäßer und schmerzlich schöner Roman, in dem sich Pakistans Vergangenheit und Gegenwart spiegeln.

This title was first published in 2000: This book provides an empirical account of social control and deviance in a South Asian community in Scotland. Focusing on Edinburgh’s Pakistani community, the book examines the social order of this particular community and the ways it is maintained. It explores the various social institutions and processes that operate as mechanisms of (informal) social control within the community. This book also examines the ways the second generation South Asians relate to their community and the extent to which they conform, or deviate from its norms. Criminological social control theory is used as an analytical framework for explaining deviance. It is concluded that the South Asian youngsters (boys) who have weak / broken bonds with their community are more likely to deviate from its norms. The book further concludes that social control and deviance are intricately interrelated. While social control defines what is deviance, the latter has important implications for the former: repeated occurrence of deviance prompts agencies of social control to redefine and gradually normalize deviance.
