    In this compelling study Dorothy McMenamin recovers the histories of Anglo-Indians in what would become Pakistan and traces the trajectories of individuals and families into the post-independence world.

It offers a bold challenge to the strong emphasis on colonial power and racial hierarchies in recent work, forwarding a counter-reading enriched by her own deep personal knowledge of this community within Pakistan and in the Anglo-Indian diaspora
