Notes: This is a scholarly and fascinating ethnographic study by a Sikh woman who came to England after growing up and going to university in the Punjab. It illustrates the changes in the values of Sikh women in England over the years and between the migrants and British born Sikhs. Dr. Rait's research subjects, all based in Leeds, come from varied backgrounds and together make up a picture of Sikh women that is transferable to England and the UK. The book is arranged as follows Chapter 1 The backgrounds of the Sikh women; Chapter 2 Religious values; Chapter 3 Women in Sikhism and Sikh society; Chapter 4 The social life of Sikh women; Chapter 5 Cultural values; Chapter 6 entitled Listen to Me provides excerpts from the women's stories about their own lives, and the conclusion confirms that Sikh women have adapted well to life on a different continent and have a strong sense of identity.
Description: xxiii, 187 s. : illustrations ; 228 x 145 mm
