|Title Review |
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 book further evinces how religion and ethico-cultural movements like Swadhyaya and Swaminarayana, performing arts, and movies are helping in the preservation of Indian culture, and in the process of identity formation. Also, it documents the increasing role and influence of Indians in the American political process, and the emergence of a group of entrepreneurs amongst them dominating in the hi-tech, hotel and medical fields.
