In: Ranasinha, Ruvani; Ahmed, Rehana; Mukherjee, Sumita and Stadtler, Florian eds.
South Asians and the shaping of Britain, 1870−1950.
Manchester: Manchester University Press.
This chapter delineates Asian contributions as soldiers, politicians, journalists and commentators to the cataclysmic ‘national’ and global events of the First and Second World Wars. It highlights how both wars shaped South Asians’ perception of Britain and the manner in which perceptions of South Asians by Britons changed as they were fighting side-by-side. The chapter contextualises a range of original source materials, which follow the chapter.
