Pressestimmen

'This is a first rate book. Alison Blunt studies a community that has been reinventing 'itself', and its senses of home and belonging, in the period since 1947. She shows how these reinventions have been pursued in different ways by different community leaders, including in the run-up to India's independence, and how another set of reinventions is playing out around the dress and marriage choices of Anglo-Indian women.' Stuart Corbridge, Professor/Doctor Geography & Regional Studies, London School of Economics 'Alison Blunt has defined and shaped this research area. Perceptive accounts of Anglo-Indian women's lives are woven through a scholarly analysis of community and identity in India and a wider diaspora through the twentieth century. She has produced an absorbing and refreshing book.' Morag Bell, Professor of Cultural Geography, Loughborough University "This is an accessible and clearly written book and would be useful for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses on cultural and postcolonial geographies" The Geographical Journal "Alison Blunt's latest offering Domicile and Diaspora: Anglo-Indian Women and the Spatial Politics of Home provides a rich and flavourful repast of the betwixt and in-between people of part-British and part-Indian descent... Blunt delivers a cogent, deeply historicized, and creatively theorized account of the cultural and spatial contours of Anglo-Indian domesticity." The Journal of Black Canadian Studies
