The children and grandchildren of South Asian migrants to the UK are
living out British identities which go largely unrecognized, as dominant
voices both inside and outside their communities seek to foreground and
hold in place alternative positionings of them as primarily Sikhs, Hindus
and Muslims or Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis or Panjabi, Gujarati,
Hindi, and Urdu speakers. This book emphasizes their everyday low-key
Britishness, albeit a Britishness with new inflections. It is this
sensibility that marks them as 'Brasians'.
