About this book

Hybrid Heritage on Screen provides a long overdue thorough analysis of the 1980s 'Raj Revival'. It examines imperial nostalgia and troubled ethnic, gender and class relations during the Thatcher Era as represented in cinema and television.

Reviews



'Interweaving the colonial and the post-colonial, this new book examines key cinematic and TV texts, as well as literature about the British Raj that makes it to the British screens in the 1980s through an engaging and nuanced interrogation of heritage and hybridity. This is a fine piece of scholarship that efficiently crosses boundaries from film and cultural studies to social and cultural history.' - Rajinder Dudrah, University of Manchester, UK

'Elena Oliete-Aldea provides a meticulous analysis of the British Raj productions of the Thatcher decade. She cogently argues that these highly popular films and TV series promoted a 'lost' British identity while simultaneously acting as a commodification of the nation's cultural heritage. Oliete-Aldea's valuable study will be of great interest to scholars and students of postcolonial studies.'

- Felicity Hand, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain
