Global Indian Diaspora

History, Culture and Identity

Edited by: Ajaya Kumar Sahoo, Laxmi Narayan Kadekar

The Indian diaspora today is one of the largest diasporas in the world. The participants form a strategic resource in intellectual, economic, and cultural spheres, besides being goodwill ambassadors of India in the land of their adoption. Recent developments in the fields of communication and transportation technology have facilitated the linkages between India and the Indian diaspora. The essays in this volume examine the historical context of Indian emigration, the diaspora formation, the rise of Indian nationalism, and issues of identity in specific diasporic locations.
