This book is a fascinating history of the India lobby in America in the pre-independence era - a little known chapter in the history of modern India. It documents the travails of early Indian migrants to North America and Canada from the beginning of the 20th century to the end of World War II. It captures their prolonged struggle for obtaining civil rights, and promoting the cause of India's freedom beyond the borders of the subcontinent.
