This is a classic account of Indians in Britain. Spanning three centuries, it tells the history of the Indian community in Britain, from the indentured servants of the 17th century to the princes, professionals, students, conscript soldiers and refuges of the 20th century. Drawing on recently declassified government documents, Rozina Visram examines the nature of Asian migration; official attitudes towards the immigrant community; the reactions and perceptions of the British people; and the social, cultural and political lives of the Asians themselves. This new edition has been thoroughly revised, expanded and completely updated.
