Review

Between Colonialism and Diaspora is a major new work on Sikh history and culture. Tony Ballantyne has framed historical events and personalities within the broad context of transformations emerging from colonial rule. His treatment of Sikh memory and the past is provocative, and the final section on bhangra explores the broad implications of how a distinctly Punjabi cultural tradition has changed and in turn influenced international dance and music. N. Gerald Barrier, coeditor of Sikhism and History"

Moving between the Punjab and Britain, Australia, and the United States, Between Colonialism and Diaspora tracks moments in the making of Sikh identities across imperial and postcolonial encounters, from military masculinities to bhangra, from the 1840s to the present. Tony Ballantyne is establishing himself as one of the most exciting voices amongst a new generation of historians. Catherine Hall, author of Civilising Subjects: Metropole and Colony in the English Imagination, 1830 1867"

[A]n important addition to the growing literature on the construction of Sikh identity during the past two centuries. Unlike many writers, Ballantyne does not confine his analysis to either the colonial or the contemporary era but rather sees common threads running between them. . . . The result is a broader and more innovative understanding of Sikh cultural formations than is present in many standard accounts. . . . [A] bold and lively work. --Ian Talbot, American Historical Review"

One of the many strengths of the book is its wider application for imperial history; Sikh, diaspora, and gender studies; and transnationalism and postcolonialism. . . . The structure of the book is clear and accessible, topped and tailed with explanatory chapters that both frame the main themes and clarify the arguments made in the four main chapters or overlapping essays. . . . [I]ts real contribution lies in adding to and developing the comparatively limited historical scholarship on empire and mobility. --Shompa Lahiri "Victorian Studies ""
