Andrea Wright follows the lives of migrant men from India immersed in oil projects in the Gulf. Drawing on the migrants' experiences, coupled with an analysis of agencies, governements, and corporations that inform and shape these migrants lives, Wright demonstrates how migration is deeply informed both by workers' dreams for the future and the ghosts of history, including the enduring legacies of colonial capitalism.
