One thought on “Balti Britain: A Journey Through the British Asian Experience”

  1. After reading the first chapter and a half, and the few GR reviews, I wasn't optimistic for the rest of the book. But picking it up again later, I found it did after all have plenty more to say than stuff I'd already heard at school, from other kids and their families, and from RE lessons. A couple of others have said that there's too much about the author and his family, and therefore it never seems like the definitive book on a subject which needs one - I would agree: it has a digressive, blog [...]

  2. This was a very interesting book. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in understanding a bit about British Asian life.

  3. Interesting enough, and heartfelt enough, and worthwhile enough in this age of hardening attitudes towards multiculturalism, but it's hardly a "journey through the British Asian experience" as the subtitle has it. For a start, the majority of the views expressed here are those from second-generation writers and academics from Pakistan -- and while their voices do deserve to be heard, they're hardly representative of "British Asians". Moreover, Sardar becomes so polemical on so many occasions tha [...]

  4. Firstly, the author seems to have swallowed a thesaurus. Never use a simple word when there is a complicated one that means the same just waiting to put on the page. Irritating and unnecessary. That aside this wasn't the book I expected. Somehow I had the idea it was a somewhat lighthearted wander through Indian British communities with comments on cuisine. Nothing like that which wouldn't necessarily make it any less enjoyable except that the whole premise and conclusions of the narrative seem [...]

  5. Judging by the number of pages of this book that I dog-eared, I know that parts of it are both interesting and thought-provoking. But it’s worth noting that it took me more than three months to actually finish the book and, as I attempt to review it, I’m left with a distinct feeling of meh.With its brightly-coloured cover and jaunty title, I thought Balti Britain would be a breezy and none-too-serious read about British Asians. In fact, there’s quite a lot of gravity to be found within the [...]

  6. Sardar uses the history and experiences of his family and friends to explore the complexities of British Asian identities. I found it particularly interesting to learn more about the different religious affiliations of London mosques and the differences in religious makeup between the Muslim Council of Britain and the British Muslim Forum, but the book also touches on Jain and Hindu communities. The vignettes of Sardar's family and friends are fascinating and at times touching. He argues that, t [...]

  7. More of an exercise of his (admittedly admirable) vocabulary than the establishment of any definitive opinions. With his post-modernist sociological approach, you are left with an equally fragmented conclusion(s). That's if you can call it/them conclusion(s). I don't have much time for sociology as a stand alone academic science, but I can tell an equally unacquainted individual when I see one.

  8. self indulgent memoire mixed in with some factual truths, and some other people's accounts of their own experiences. maybe its an example of 'selfie' journalism. by no means that definitive text i was hoping for

  9. interesting insight into mutli culturalism and into the author's view of what it means to be an asian britain
