Summary
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
