Description
From taxi drivers to CEOs and Indian American governors Haley and Jindal—how distinctions strain solidarity in the politics of South Asian (or Desi) Americans. Focusing on Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi American communities, Sangay K. Mishra analyzes internal characteristics that lead to multiple paths of political inclusion. This exploration is critical to understanding the changing nature of the politics of immigrant inclusion—and difference—in America.
