Reviews

"Bhatt's ethnographic study illustrates in detail the lived reality of the men, women and children who make up this population of transmigrants - moving from India to the US, back to India and oftentimes back again to the States. Whilst focusing on the gendered dimension of these movements, the book presents a broader context of how personal and professional expectations and aspirations are affected by legal frameworks, family demands and considerations about future migrations. . . . [a] rich empiracal work."

"An intimate look into the world of IT sector workers from India who live and work in places like Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland and Seattle . . . highlights the calculated decisions many of these young families make to ensure their own financial stability and maintain connections with both U.S. and India."
