Multicultural Education and Indian Diaspora in Canda by Aditya Raj
The Indian diaspora is growing in size and strength. The missing link in diaspora studies is still education although migration for education has been explored. This book examines how the Canadian multicultural education provides a unique milieu that may be useful for our diaspora. The author draws from his research and teaching experiences at McGill University. This work will especially benefit young scholars in migration and diaspora studies, educational studies, and those in international relations- both in India and in Canada.
