Description

Asian people have been coming to Britain since the seventeenth century. Many came to make a living and to escape from poverty in British-ruled India. Some were rich, others were students or professionals but most were working class. Today, the large Asian community in Britain is diverse and widespread, embracing all walks of life. This book examines why Asians have come to Britain over the years and how they have made a living and won political recognition. There are case studies of particular individuals, and some rarely-published photographs.
