This 160-page illustrated volume is based upon Professor Lals path-breaking scholarship and research on Indian history, comparative colonial histories, and the contemporary politics of knowledge and culture. The Other Indians synthesizes, in pocketbook form, his ideas around the emergence of the Indian community in the U.S. with a focus on post-1965 communities. The thirteen chapters cover the following topics: Indians in the global setting and their passage to America- early students and rebels- the emergence of new South Asian communities- culture, religion, education, and affluence- and the politics and future of Indians in the U.S and in the Indian diaspora.

This is the first volume of the Presss Asia Pacific Ideas/Professor-in-a-Pocket series that features the innovative thinking and research of the renowned faculty of the UCLA Asian American Studies Center. The Center, established in 1969, and the new UCLA Asian American Studies Department, together constitute the only Asian American studies program in the nation which combines teaching, research, and publishing. The Other Indians is the first pocket-sized political and culture history of South Asian Indians in America and designed for the general public as well as classroom usage.
