South Asian Diaspora

New to Routledge for 2009

The South Asian Diaspora, shaped by dispersions of people, goods, ideas 
and beliefs that flowed from and through the Indian Subcontinent is 
currently one of the world's largest diasporas. India, Pakistan, 
Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and the Maldives all anchor a sense 
of home for people who have moved outside the region through the 
centuries. These territories evoke emotional, social, political, 
economic, cultural and literary affiliations as well which find 
expression in multiple ways. The diaspora is also marked by struggles 
over meanings and tensions both amongst the diasporics and with people 
in the countries where the diasporics now inhabit. In South Asian 
Diaspora we aim to explore some of the issues that the South Asian 
diaspora presents for the contemporary world.
