“Karan shows how this collectively created social capital gradual-ly acquired cultural capital, as the migrants’ children became familiar with the English language, and as the experience of running business-es in London was shared among the migrants. Alongside these pro-cesses, he sees the emergence of a new form of ethnic identification to ‘our people’ – the Türkiyeli – based on the sharing of common experi-ences. And this identification, he finds, is shared by both Kurdish and Turkish communities as well as by those with religious and non-religious beliefs. The book provides detailed insights into these mi-grant experiences, while also considering the theoretical explanations. It is a really welcome contribution for everyone concerned with the problems and challenges of integration and of identify today.”
