The Indian diaspora today is one of the largest diasporas in the world. They 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 included 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. The volume will not only interest general readers but also students of international migration and Indian diaspora.
