India is the seventh largest contributor of immigrants to the United States. Helweg (anthropology, Western Michigan U.) topically explores a range of issues facing the Indian immigrant, many of whom are well-educated professionals representing what has been termed the "New Immigration." He explores the relationship between immigrant communities, the U.S. as host country, and India as the sending country, as well as offering some discussion of the impact of the Indians returning to India. He also explores the experience of Indian Americans living in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
