Twice Migrated, Twice Displaced explores the lives of Gulf South Asians who arrived in Canada from India and Pakistan via Persian Gulf countries. Tania Das Gupta reveals the multiple migration patterns of this group, analyzing themes such as gender, racial, and religious discrimination; class mobility; the formation of transnational families; and identities in a post-9/11 context. This perceptive study demonstrates the effect of neoliberal labour markets and transnationalism on community building, diaspora, citizenship, and a sense of belonging when in Canada.
