Summary
Sandhu tells an ethnographic tale about the everyday lives of Asian Indian elites, their spouses, and children in two of the largest communities in the United States --Southern California and the Silicon Valley. Sandhu documents that beyond the visible successes of Asian Indians in the work sphere, spousal selection and the mobility of their new second generation are critical dimensions of their identities as elites. Sandhu extends and sharpens the concepts of cultural and social capital, processes of assimilation, and construction of identity to this understudied group
