Description

This book studies the politics surrounding Indian emigration from the 19th century to the present day. Bringing together data and case studies from across five continents, it moves beyond economic and social movers of migration, and explores the role of politics—both local and global—in shaping diaspora at a deeper level.

The work will be invaluable to scholars and students of migration and diaspora studies, development studies, international politics, and sociology as well as policy-makers, and non-governmental organizations in the field.

Reviews

‘This is a remarkably well-written and informative book on Indian migration, a phenomenon that everyone is interested in, but one which is often plagued by absence of data, information and facts. But the book goes beyond data and probes the political economy’. — Bibek Debroy, Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi

‘[A]n in-depth analysis of the growing influence of the Indian Diaspora abroad . . . There is no better work on the politics of migration from an Indian perspective . . . Thought-provoking, insightful, thoroughly-researched and impressively argued’. — Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament, India

‘[P]resents pioneering analysis of the complexity of the Indian migration phenomenon and related policy making.’— Dilip Ratha, World Bank

‘Didar Singh and Irudaya Rajan have written an important book on the politics of migration that deserves to be read widely because governments will not be able to control for too long what has always been a natural human phenomenon.’ — Sanjaya Baru, International Institute of Strategic Studies
