Diversities in the Indian Diaspora

About this Book

Among the immigrants of diverse nationalists worldwide, the Indian diaspora constitutes a sizeable portion. This collection explores the nature and manifestation of institutional and socio-cultural diversities among the large Indian diaspora. It studies Indian communities formed during the colonial era, the so-called ‘old diaspora’, and those formed largely after India’s independence, the so-called ‘new diaspora’. This book will be of considerable interest to students and scholars of politics, sociology, social anthropology, history, gender studies, religion and culture studies, and migration and diaspora studies.
