Indians in America

One Stream, Two Waves, Three Generations

By Pravin Sheth

Indians in America have emerged as one of the most dynamic immigrant communities in the american mosaic. This book narrates their diasporic saga covering pre-1950 stream, and two waves (post-1965, and 1980), and profiles the three generations. It examines empirically the gaps in the perceptions and priorities of the first-generation parents, their second-generation children, and the elderly. It also probes the complex relationship pattern of the emerging new indian woman in the family as well as the latent phenomenon of domestic violence. The first of its kind presenting a comprehensive account of the indian diaspora in America, this book will prove to be of great value to the Indian-American community, and to the students of diaspora with a focus on this community. So also, those interested in studying the issues of identity and cultural assimilation, immigration history, and multiculturalism will find it immensely useful.
