The diasporic imaginary and the Indian diaspora

Mishra, V. (2012) The diasporic imaginary and the Indian diaspora. In: Sahoo, A.K., Baas, M. and Faist, T., (eds.) Indian diaspora and transnationalism. Rawat Publications, New Delhi, India.


The present study of transnationalism was born out of observations that migrants no longer simply cross borders to live elsewhere, but regularly turn this ‘crossing borders’ into a lifestyle of its own. The chapters in this volume present not only an important overview of the state of the study on Indian transnationalism, but also act as an important source of inspiration to think beyond the concept and the way it has been studied so far. The book will be useful to students and researchers working in the areas of Indian diaspora and transnationalism.
