Details: Product Description This volume explores the contributions of Sikh diaspora to the political, social-cultural, and religious milieu of contemporary Punjab. It examines the network, concerns, and dynamics behind such contributions. The book also discusses the religious and cultural underpinnings of diasporan Sikh philanthropy through an analysis of broad trends-origins, growth, and contemporary aspects-as well as through specific case studies. The contributors examine the theoretical understanding of diasporan philanthropy as an alternative model of social welfare, investment patterns in developmental/sponsored projects and its influence in rural Punjab. They also raise significant questions such as, whether this trend is a boon or a bane for rural development and the actual implications of these in humanitarian terms. About the Author Verne A. Dusenbery is Professor of Anthropology and Chair of the Global Studies Program at Hamline University, Minnesota. Darshan S. Tatla is Founder-Editor of the International Journal of Punjab Studies and Director, Punjab Centre for Migration Studies, Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar, Punjab.
