"Domicile and Diaspora" investigates geographies of home and identity for Anglo-Indian women in the 50 years before and after Indian independence in 1947. The first book to study the Anglo-Indian community past and present, in India, Britain and Australia. The first book by a geographer to focus on a community of mixed descent. It draws on interviews and focus groups with over 150 Anglo-Indians, as well as archival research. It makes a distinctive contribution to debates about home, identity, hybridity, migration and diaspora.
