Overview

Nation and Migration (South Asia Seminar Series): The Politics of Space in the South Asian Diaspora by Peter van der Veer

Peter van der Veer and the contributors to this volume explore the relationship between South Asian nationalism, migration, ethnicity, and the construction of religious identity. Although nationality and diaspora seem to represent opposite ideas and values, the authors argue that nationalism is strengthened, even produced, by migration.
