Chapter 3 considers how South Asian immigrants reconciled notions of class and race from India and Pakistan with those of a changing American South. Tolerated but socially marginalized as too foreign, Indian and Pakistani students collapsed their own national identities to form an interethnic community identity, mainly through the university. Through the American Host Family program, a Cold War initiative, students also built an off-campus support network.
