From a college library. Due date slip has no removal stamps. "Kinship and Continuity is an ethnographic account of the development of the Pakistani presence in Oxford, from after WWII to the present day. Alison Shaw addresses the dynamics of migration, patterns of residence and kinship, ideas about health and illness, and notions of political and religious authority, and discusses the continuities and transformations of the lives of British Pakistanis against the backdrop of rural Pakistan and local socio-economic changes. The book concludes by drawing out the implications for more general questions of race relations, ethnicity, and citizenship in modern Britain."--Publisher.
