    Very informative, but not dry

    "... Lessinger covers a range of topics in From the Ganges to the Hudson, such as how Indians fit into the New Immigration, creating an ethnic identity and infrastructure (maintaining their traditional cultural and religious identities in their new environment), and how our very different U.S. culture affects the relationship between the younger generations and their more traditional older relatives. She also discusses the relationship between immigrants from India and immigrants from other Southeast Asian countries. ..."
