Mary Beth Mills, Professor of Anthropology at Colby College, reviews Migration, Modernity, and Social Transformation in South Asia. The book provides a wide array of ethnographic studies on current migration in South Asia that challenge stereotypical patterns of migration. Examples come from Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan and cover internal and international migration, gendered patterns of migration, and others. The breadth and diversity of these studies make the book useful to both regional specialists as well as scholars of migration as a whole.
