Product Details

About the Author

Ziauddin Sardar was born in Pakistan in 1951 and grew up in East London. He works as a journalist and broadcaster and has published over 40 books, including Desperately Seeking Paradise.


'Energetic and accessible, Balti Britain is a powerful evocation of both the profundity and the myopia of the relationship between South Asia and Albion' Independent 'An erudite and entertaining book and it is its core contention that resonates profoundly: that Asians are not newcomers to Britain or foreigners to be accommodated and tolerated. Rather, the histories of Britain and the subcontinent are so intertwined through the experience of Empire and colonialism that British Asians are in fact direct products of this centuries-old encounter' The Times 'Sardar's engrossing, provocative book takes him and his readers on a journey - sometimes personal, always political - In the process, it reveals what he believes is the concealed history of the long relationship between Britain and India, Pakistan and Bangladesh' Metro 'An ambitious and provocative book that deserves to be read as the first draft of the history of Asians in Britain today' Observer "Deftly spiced and meaty concoctions that leave a largely positive taste in the mouth' Independent Biography and Memoirs Christmas Round Up. 'The great achievement of this book is to bring this is to bring this remarkable history to life with a novelist's sense of character - [A] clear-headed examination of multicultural Britain' Financial Times
