REVIEW ESSAY: Britain’s Anglo-Indians: The Invisibility of Assimilation
Uther Charlton-Stevens presents an extensive review essay on Rochelle Almeida’s recent book, Britain’s Anglo-Indians (Lexington, 2017). He considers her work on first generation Anglo-Indians who migrated ‘home’ to Britain both important and heretofore understudied. Finding Almeida’s thesis persuasive, that these first generation migrants to Britain formed a hybrid sub-culture of British Anglo-Indianness in contrast to those who went Canada or Australia, Charlton-Stevens highlights possible intersection points with other scholarship and new areas for further inquiry.
