9780791087862: Indian Americans (New Immigrants (Chelsea House))

Barely 40 years after beginning a major immigration movement to the United States, Indian Americans have established vigorous, thriving communities in major metropolitan areas across the country. Author Padma Rangaswamy traces their history, from the early days of the Punjabi pioneers in California to the triumphs of the "dot-com generation." Combining human interest with critical analysis, historical data, and current information, "Indian Americans" relates this group's remarkable story in a clearly written style that will speak to a young generation of readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—This book, part of a series focusing on immigrant communities benefiting from the 1965 liberalization of U.S. immigration laws, describes the history of Indian migration to the United States. There are also occasional mentions of Indian Canadians and Canadian immigration policy. Study questions are included at the end of each chapter. The book also includes black-and-white and color photos; tables and charts; and a map of India. Spotlights scattered throughout the text focus on specific Indian Americans or topics such as tracing roots. The various laws and bills passed throughout the years hindering immigration from India are described in a level of detail that may confuse some readers, but the book's biggest drawback is that it has no pronunciation guides. Still, this is a useful addition for collections on immigration, Indian Americans, or American history.—S K Joiner, Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, TX
