Product description

Review

"Refreshing and highly readable." --"Contemporary Sociology "

"Alexander's book is a fascinating analysis of the social construction and demonisation of Asian young men as members of "the Asian Gang" ... A fascinating and challenging account of the construction of meaning of racialised masculinity and a welcome addition to studies of the social construction of identity." --"Gender, Place and Culture"

"It is rare to find a book that comes anywhere near allowing its informants to 'live and breathe' within the scope of its bleached pages. Claire Alexander's book on young 'Bengali' men in London does just that." --"Ethnic and Racial Studies"

"This is an exceptional book that is both lucid and engaged ... The Asian Gang could be a landmark in how to conduct social research.' --"Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies"
'Through interviews with several young people Alexander nicely debunks the notion that they might embrace a unified Asian identity based exclusively (or primarily) on ethnicity." --"Current Sociology"
