Summary

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.
