An interesting source would be

Malcolm Bradbury (ed.).
E. M. Forster: A Collection of Critical Essays (Twentieth Century Views).
Englewood Cliffs: Prentice Hall, 1966

There's also another compilation of essays edited by Bradbury called 'E.M. Forster: A Passage to India' - I don't know if that would be the same book (is there anyone who could help us out here?).

There are in fact so many books dealing with Forster's 'A Passage to India' that it is hard to pick one. Any book or article dealing with 'A Passage to India' is bound to deal with your 'culture clashes' in some way or other - it is such a vital element of this novel. The best idea seems to browse the classic Forster-related books (Like Furbank's biography, but also relatively more recent titles such as 'Queer Forster') as there is bound to be something interesting there. Good luck!
