The Indian Diaspora: Dynamics of Migration

N Jayaram (Editor)
Synopsis The study of the Indian diaspora has emerged as a rich and variegated area of multidisciplinary research interest. Among the disciplines contributing to this field of immense theoretical import, sociology has been at the forefront. This volume brings together nine seminal articles by well-known scholars dealing with empirical reality of the Indian diaspora and the theoretical and methodological issues raised by it. Between them they cover a variety of important aspects such as social adjustment, family change, religion, language, ethnicity and culture. Specifically, the cultural dynamics explored in this volume includes: The social adjustment of Indian emigrants in Britain, Cultural persistence and adaptation among Indians and Pakistanis in Canada, The uneven 'inclusion' of Indian emigrants in Mauritius, Race relations and ethnicity among Indians in Trinidad and Malaysia, The influence of Indian Islam on fundamentalist trends in Trinidad and Tobago, The dynamics of language in the Indian diaspora. Exploring the socio-cultural dynamics of Indian communities abroad, this important volume will be of considerable interest to students of the Indian diaspora, social demography and migration studies. It will also be useful for sociologists, social anthropologists and political scientists.
