The Sun Never Sets presents the work of a generation of scholars who are shifting the orientation of South Asian American studies. In its early years, the field centered on literary and cultural analyses and focused predominantly on the immigrant professionals who arrived in the United States after changes to immigration laws in the 1960s. Here, the contributors focus on the political economy and long history of South Asian migrations to the U.S.—and upon the lives, work, and activism of often unacknowledged migrant populations—in ways that not only challenge preconceptions about the South Asian presence in the United States, but illuminate continuities between British Imperialism and U.S.-led globalization. These essays track changes in global power that have influenced the paths and experiences of migrants—from the Indian farmers, seamen and radicals who sought work and refuge in the U.S. in the 1910s to Indian nurses sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation during the Cold War to the post-9/11 detainees and deportees caught in the crossfire of the “War on Terror”.Printed Pages: 408.
