Description - Borders and Mobility in South Asia and Beyond by PROF DR Reece Jones
The world is experiencing one of the largest movements of people in history with 65 million people in 2015 alone displaced by conflict, the majority of these coming from Asia. This book offers a deep engagement with individuals whose lives were shaped by encounters with borders: by telling the stories of a poor Bangladeshi women who regularly crosses the India border to visit family, Muslims from India living in Gulf countries for work, and the traumatic journey of a young Afghan man as he sets off on foot towards Germany. The international and interdisciplinary work in this book analyses how mobility and diaspora are engaged in literature and media and how the lives of migrants are transformed during their journey to new homes in South Asia, the Middle East, North America, and Europe, coalescing in a timely portrait of migrancy and undesired mobility.
