Synopsis: People of South Asian descent are a large, varied and increasingly visible part of Hong Kong's population. Most have found ways of prospering despite social and economic obstacles and widespread discrimination. Focusing on three important groups―Indians, Pakistanis and Nepalese―Erni and Leung explore the cultural histories of South Asians in Hong Kong and their experiences at school and at work. It examines how far their legal rights are protected by recent anti-discrimination legislation, how they are presented in mainstream media, and how they in turn have made creative use of the media in their efforts to secure recognition as full members of society. Written in an accessible style and drawing on a range of case studies, Understanding South Asian Minorities in Hong Kong will be of interest to students in a wide variety of disciplines, including sociology, social work, media studies, anthropology, history and cultural studies. At a time when minority rights and education come increasingly under scrutiny, the book will also be essential reading for advocates, politicians and policy-makers.

About the Author: John Nguyet Erni is a professor in the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing at Hong Kong Baptist University. Lisa Yuk-ming Leung is an associate professor in the Department of Cultural Studies at Lingnan University.
