Indian Diaspora and Giving Patterns of Indian Americans in the USA is an edited volume that explores issues relating to the Indian Diaspora in the United States of America .
The volume begins by defining â€˜Diaspora', and exploring major Diasporas and Diaspora movements in world history.
The history of the Indian Diaspora is examined in the comparative context of the Jewish and Chinese Diasporas. Moving from a historical to a more contemporary perspective, there is then an attempt to analyse the giving patterns of Indian Americans in the United States.
Articles dealing with the regional Diasporas “including the Telegu, Punjabi and Gujarati" from Indian states, including their history, their networks and their identity within Indian Diasporas in the United States are included in the book.
A concluding article explores the possibility of returned Diaspora in healthcare within India . The book also contains a database of several Indian American community organisations.
