Migration, Mobility and Multiple Affiliations studies Punjabi transnational life from perspectives that have relevance for contemporary policy, planning and governance. It analyses spatially widespread, integrated and complex Punjabi diaspora while simultaneously reflecting their vulnerability in an increasingly globalized world. Besides an overarching introduction and a historical overview, this book covers shifting contours of international migration, social structure and organizational links, interrelationship between education and migration, and family networks of the Punjabi emigrants to focus on Punjabi transnationalism. This edited volume, with contributions from eminent scholars of diaspora and transnationalism, creates a holistic picture of the community, looking at caste consciousness and identity abroad, social remittances, Sikh religious identity, traditions and practices, politics of Sikh separatism, transnational connections and crimes and violence. The study gains greater clarity through its approach of studying Punjabi settlements in specific countries individually.List of Tables and Figures Preface Acknowledgements Introduction- Transnational World and Indian Punjab Contemporary Issues Part I.
