Description:

Coined in the third century B.C., the term "diaspora" has evolved into a buzzword used to describe the migrations of groups as diverse as ethnic populations, religious communities, and professionals, even engineers working abroad. This concise, lucidly written book provides a critical introduction to the concept of diaspora that brings a fresh, synthetic perspective to virtually all aspects of this topic. Steacute;phane Dufoix incorporates a wealth of case studies-including Jewish, Armenian, African, Chinese, Greek, and South Asian Indian experiences to illustrate key concepts, give a clear overview of current thinking on diaspora, and to reassess the value of the term for us today. He first considers how the ancient word evolved to its manifold meanings in the political, social, economic, and cultural realms. Dufoix then explores historical shifts from fifteenth through twentieth centuries in transportation, communication, trade, and population that have altered our understanding of the diaspora experience. Finally, he outlines a more dynamic approach to thinking about the relationship between dispersed populations and their homelands.
