CHAPTER FIVE: BACKGROUND OF THE UTOPIA
This article comes from a classic scholarly work on Anglo-Indians: In Search of a Homeland: Anglo-Indians and McCluskiegunge (1990). Lahiri-Dutt has allowed IJAIS to republish chapter 5 'Background of the Utopia’, which explores the motives behind this unique Anglo-Indian project, which had everything to do with Anglo-Indian identity as a nation and/or within a nation. In addition this article includes a further piece in the form of an author’s note, reflecting on the time in which she wrote it, and her thoughts on this seminal work, now 25 years later.
