This chapter discusses the age distribution, place of birth and family background of the boys, including their parents' ability to read and write, their level of education and occupations. It gives an account of the boys' interaction with the wider society mainly through the (local Scottish) school and 'best friends'. The chapter discusses the use of television in the Pakistani home, and the exposure of the Pilrig boys to Western values through this 'window from the outside world'. It discusses the responses of the Pilrig boys to the wider society's culture and its influence on them. In order to examine the extent of the influence of Western values on these Muslim boys, the chapter focuses on the attitudes of these boys to three important issues that are central to the social and moral order of Edinburgh's Pakistani community. They are: 'wearing of Western clothes by Pakistani women'; 'having girlfriends'; and 'arranged marriage'.
