Summary Britain is now permanently a multi-racial and multicultural society. "Between Cultures" considers the position of young Asians in Britain in relation to education, employment, housing, the police and the responses they encounter from these institutions. Muhammad Anwar explores the cultural issues of family, marriage, religion and mother tongue, as well as the roles of Asian parents and the Asian community. He then goes on to compare the situation of young Asians with that of young people generally, and to those in similar circumstances but with different backgrounds and religions.
Subject Asians -- Great Britain -- Social life and customs.
Great Britain -- Race relations.
