This is one of the first books to explore Nepali diaspora in a global context, across India and other parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and Australia. It discusses the social, political and economic status and aspirations of the Nepali community worldwide. The essays in the volume cover a range of themes including belonging and identity politics among Nepalese migrants, representation of Indian Nepalis in literature, diasporic consciousness, forceful eviction and displacement, social movements, and ritual practices among migrant communities. Drawing attention to the lives of Nepali emigrants, the volume presents a sensitive and balanced understanding of their options and constraints, and their ambivalences about who they are.

This work will be invaluable to scholars and students of Nepal studies, area studies, diaspora and migration studies, social anthropology, cultural studies and literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book is a pioneering exploration of the global Nepali diaspora and an outstanding addition to the comparative study of contemporary trans-continental migrations from South Asia. The volume brings out in a subtle and masterly way the global scenario of identity and livelihood predicaments of overseas Nepali communities. The distinguished editors and contributors deserve our thanks and congratulations for having admirably filled an existing gap in diaspora studies from the sub-continent.
