This piece looks at the first Gulf War and how the Pakistani community in Manchester took a confrontational stance against the majority of British society and supported Saddam Hussein. In particular Werbner focuses on the process of global and local fabulations, how a global event was translated into a local narrative forming part of an important identity for the Muslim diasporic community within Manchester and indeed Britain as a whole.
