About this book

This book follows the transnational lives of children growing up as British Bangladeshi individuals in multicultural London. Exploring the array of international events, communities and forces which influence them, Zeitlyn examines the socialisation practices among British Bangladeshi families and how this shapes their childhood and identities.

Reviews

'This book is a 'must-read' for anyone interested in South Asian transnational migration, diasporic identities and the experiences of children whose families are spread between two continents. Elaborating on the concept of 'social fields' Benjamin Zeitlyn shows how British Bangladeshi children and their parents negotiate and shape the different worlds they inhabit. Through detailed and rich ethnography, and an illuminating account of the debates surrounding transnational childhoods, 'integration' and emerging Muslim identities, this book is a significant contribution which deserves to be widely read.' Katy Gardner, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
