Indian Diaspora in the United States looks at the topic of brain drain from a new lens. It uses Indian migration to the United States as a case study. Its approach is different from the conventional way of looking at international migration from India. The book includes discussions on “brain gain” and “brain circulation” for source countries. Recipient-countries not only benefit in the form of remittances, investments and savings but also by networking and bringing ideas and technology into India. By achieving success in and visibility in host countries, the diaspora community further influences economic and political benefits for their home countries. This groundbreaking work brings economic and political issues to the dimension of migration and concerns over brain drain. With its rigorous, network approach, this book is a valuable contribution to the studies of Indian diaspora, labour, and globalization. Printed Pages: 264.
