Human movement - and how it should be controlled - has become a major political issue in recent years. This volume reopens discussions on movement both within rural areas, and between villages, towns and cities - aspects and types of migration on which contemporary anthropology and sociology are largely silent - in South Asia. The book demonstrates how economic considerations apart, migrations are `projects of transformation’, in which migrants forge new identities and challenge the existing order.
