Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the most comprehensive documents of the history of Indian immigrants in the United States. Rangaswamy demonstrates full command of the history, culture, and linguistic profile of America's Indian community, offering both insiders and outsiders perspectives on issues of importance to immigrants. --Rajeshwari Pandharipande, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Rangaswamy s book is a superb resource for the study of Indian immigrants in the U.S. Her documentation of the Indian community in Chicago is not only thorough but interesting and provides readers with a wide variety of both quantitative and ethnographic data that would be useful for researchers in the social sciences as well as the humanities.

Essential reading for those interested in issues pertaining to Indian immigration. --Deepak Sarma, Religious Studies Review

This is a theoretically sensitive, readable book that is constructed by turns from inside and outside, seeing through screens of race, class, and gender. The text rises above the specific and provides useful general insights to understanding lives of Indian immigrant communities in other parts of the country and the world. --H.S. Bhola, American Historical Review

Format: Hardcover
I found te book interesting but I did have my problems with it. First off though she does a fine job organizing her immense data into a easily readable narrative/descriptive hybrid. She explains how things are and then enters into her interviews which make a great mix. The only bad part I thought was her failure to enter any important conclusions to the end of her work. However I do recommend this book especially for the South Asian in urban areas dealing with identity.
