Conflicts in terms of cultural and ethnic identities characterise the increasingly multi-cultural and globalised societies of our time. In Great Britain, the 'Thatcher decade' marked a watershed in British society, bringing about important changes in the political, economic, social and cultural reality of the country. Integrating a methodical textual analysis within a comprehensive cultural approach, Elena Oliete-Aldea offers a vibrant study of the hybridity, fluidity and contingency of identity construction in Britain and explores how contested power relations constantly intertwine discourses of gender, class and ethnicity. Hybrid Heritage on Screen examines how the so-called 'Raj Revival' cinematic productions of the 1980s disclose the contradictions, fractures and inconsistencies of the Thatcher era. Due to its dynamic interdisciplinary approach, the book is an invaluable study for film and cultural studies scholars and students, as well as filmgoers interested in cinema as a social, historical and cultural product.
