British-born Asian adolescents have to face the problems of growing up in two distinct cultural traditions and value systems, with conflicting demands being made by home and school on behaviour, loyalties and obligations. This book looks at the inter-ethnic relations, racial prejudice, gender equality, the development of ethnic identity: bilingualism: the practice of home religion: and scholastic achievement and adjustment. Its aim it to provide an up-to-date picture of the situation of South Asian and Chinese adolescents living in the UK today.
