Social theorists focus on the everyday lives and experiences of people living in South Asia in this book composed of papers that clearly convey important facets of the history, diversity, and richness of the region's social-cultural life, as well as speak to theoretical questions and concerns viewed as vital by a range of contemporary scholars. This edition contains many updated versions of those from the original book, as well as new papers from scholars whose work focuses on the kinds of critical contemporary issues that have impacted the region and grabbed the media over recent years: young, middle-class workers in call centers, the impact on local gender systems of the massive out-migration of Sri Lankan housemaids to oil-producing Middle East, the force and flavor of new Hindu nationalisms, contemporary terrain of homosexualities and local "global gay" movements, "brain-drain in reverse" of professionals to India, and the emergence of new middle-class lifeways amidst far reaching processes of cultural economic liberalization and globalization.

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange of ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia. The Annual Reviewof South Asian Languages and Linguistics is designed to be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but which have universal applicability. Each volumewill have four major sections: I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research in South Asian languages. II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing various viewpoints. III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral theses.

Haseltine's directory is designed primarily to contribute to the study of Asian immigration, assimilation, and ethnic distinctiveness. The cultural groups Haseltine examines are Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, and Korean peoples, whose migration across the Pacific began in the mid- and late 1800s. Separate chapters treat artifacts, sites, and traditions of special significance to Asian immigrants to North America. This book is an excellent reference for those interested in the immigration and culture of Asian-Americans and will be an excellent resource for courses in Asian history in North America.
