Sangay K. Mishra, author of Desis Divided, will be at Rutgers University on Thursday, October 27 at 11:00 a.m. for a reading and discussion of his book. A light lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Focusing on Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi American communities, Sangay K. Mishra analyzes internal characteristics that lead to multiple paths of political inclusion. This exploration is critical to understanding the changing nature of the politics of immigrant inclusion—and difference—in America.
"Sangay K. Mishra’s book is the first of its kind involving the politics of South Asians in the United States. Desis Divided fills an important gap in the study of Asian American politics and speaks to a larger literature on minority political incorporation, showing both the strengths and limitations of Desi political involvement." —Karthick Ramakrishnan, University of California, Riverside
