This work builds on fieldwork carried out by the author in a London borough. Looking at the identities of young British Pakistanis it examines how the religion they are taught by their parents is a stabilising identity in a world and culture which due to their dual heritage they are both a part of and outside from. Building on extensive interviews this work is extremely useful in understanding the outlook and identity of young British Muslims.
