This introduction presents an overview of key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book examines the experiences of British-born young people of Pakistani origin and, who were between the ages of fourteen and nineteen living in Bradford at the time. The research had particular focus on the relationship between young boys/girls, their parents and the Pakistani community. The book explores issues of power and control within this community; exploring the activities of individual lives. It examines the importance and the influence of culture in relation to Islam; and the role it plays in wider group of Pakistani community and specifically with young people in Bradford, in terms of the distinctions between generations, how an alien culture adapts to a new culture. Measuring the economic position of communities is easier to determine; what is more difficult is to examine the experiences and attitudes of young people towards their parents/elders; their community and the wider British society.
