About this product
- DescriptionThe problem of migration is a prime example of a subject that requires the skills and approaches of scholars from several disciplines, such as anthropology, demography, ecomics, sociology, law, political science, and history. This book explores the importance of historical investigation into migration, which can be traced back to the pre-modern period. It continues to be an important socio-ecomic phemen in most parts of the world, though, more than the internal movement of people, the international angle has captured the global imagination of the scholars interested in migration studies. In India, both migration within the country and to outside the country is distinctly traceable back to the 19th century. In contrast to today's high figures of internal migration, the India of this period witnessed the mass migration of labourers to overseas territories in the wake of migration of surplus capital, an inevitable result of the Industrial Revolution in the West. Relevant to discussions of internal migration in Andhra is the question of whether the people of this area were rmally inclined towards mobility or were averse to it during the period under scrutiny. This book discusses the causes of the comparative immobility of the people of Andhra in relation to the wider high migration trends at the time, including their traditional attachment to their native locale.
