The Sikhs in Britain: 150 Years of Photographs

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This is the fascinating photographic history of the Sikhs and their contribution to British society from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. The Sikhs were the first community to migrate in large numbers to Britain from the Asian sub-continent. There were four major periods of mass migration - 1930s, post-war, 1960s and 1970s - and Peter Bance describes stories of individuals, capturing their struggles and successes. We see makeshift places of worship in the early days, the golden days of glory as the maharajahs visited British royalty and nobility, Sikhs based in Britain serving in the military, as well as portraits of marriages, social life and employment, integration and religion. From a tartan Lord Sikh in a Scottish castle and a veteran record-breaking Adidas-sponsored marathon man to an inspiring international England cricket star, this book tells the story of one of the most successful migrant races to settle into, and contribute to, British society.
