Afghan Eye: "An important new study."

A monumental account of one migrant community’s everyday lives, struggles, and aspirationsThis book is based on research with a group of South Eastern Afghan Pakhtuns settled in Brighton, England. The men are first generation refugees with low educational attainment and work as taxi drivers, cooks, kitchen porters etc. These Pakhtuns maintain links with their exiled families in Pakistan and the author journeys on trips back to Pakistan with her Pakhtun research subjects. The author’s research highlights that Pakhtuns are transnational and are not tied to an integrated territorial entity. The authors research methods involve assessing life history work and labour migrations, exile, displacement as well as evaluation of nighttime dreams.
