This book deals with an important issue in the contemporary world, i.e., the Indian Diaspora, at a time when India is emerging as a global economic and geo-political power. The Indian Diaspora today numbers around 28 million, has a presence in nearly every part of the world, and most importantly, has a distinct identity, one that can be contrasted to other major diasporas such as the Chinese and the Armenians. The relationship of diasporic Indians with the homeland is getting stronger as a result of the revolution in faster information and communication technologies, and at the same time the Indian Government has been encouraging linkages of diasporic Indians with India in a variety of ways. This book will be useful not only to sociologists but also to scholars working in the fields of anthropology, political science, geography, history, literary, ethnic and migration studies.
