Gujarati Indian Networks in New York and London

(p.1) 1 Gujarati Indian Networks in New York and London
Modern Migrations
Stanford University Press

This book explores the life histories of Gujarati immigrants in New York and London, which are closely associated with sociohistorical linkages and relations among India, Britain, and East Africa, or between India and the United States. Based on interviews with Gujarati Indians in New York and London conducted between 1998 and 1999, it examines the wide diversity of experiences among the Gujarati immigrants with regards to migration and settlement in the United States or the United Kingdom. It considers how such experiences were shaped in large part by the various sorts of social ties that are part of their social networks. The book also looks at the role of interpersonal ties to family, friends, and community in determining whether people migrate, where they go, and what happens to them once they arrive at their new destination. It shows that social ties included not only interpersonal ties, but also ties to institutions, businesses, and state agencies.

Keywords:   Gujarati Indians, New York, London, immigrants, migration, life histories, social ties, social networks, interpersonal ties, family
