Summary The Sun Never Sets collects the work of a generation of scholars who are enacting a shift in the orientation of the field of South Asian American studies which has, until recently, largely centered on literary and cultural analyses of an affluent immigrant population. The contributors focus instead on the histories and political economy of South Asian migration to the U.S.-and upon the lives, work, and activism of specific, often unacknowledged, migrant populations-presenting a more comprehensive vision of the South Asian presence in the United States.
