Product Overview

Harbingers of Global Change enriches a revealing case study of a little-understood group of immigrants with the contemplation of broader social dynamics, including assimilation, acculturation, and the persistence of racial and ethnic prejudice. Author Roli Varma reveals how familiar obstacles to social equity - such as the silicon ceiling - are complicated by the unique constellation of social pressures confronting a group of scientists and engineers whose talent is highly valued, and yet whose presence as culturally unfamiliar human beings is received with unease and ambivalence. The analysis combines U.S. political and social history as it bears on immigration policy with a sensitive and balanced treatment of how India's techno-immigrants negotiate career, family, and loyalty to social-cultural traditions.
