This chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to explore and discuss the meaning of a new kind of subject construction informed by globalization—the new cosmopolitan subject—and all that it entails in life experiences for South Asians within the nation-space of the United States. It reviews theories of diaspora, globalization, modernity, and migration. It then discusses the presence of South Asians in America and scholarship on South Asians. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   South Asians, diaspora, globalization, America, modernity, migration
