Global Diasporas - 2nd edition

Global Diasporas (ISBN10: 041543551X; ISBN13: 9780415435512)
ISBN13: 978-0415435512
ISBN10: 041543551X

Summary: The first edition of this book showed how the ancient Greek concept of diaspora could be refurbished to understand many aspects of ethnic diversity and international migration. In this second, fully revised edition, Robin Cohen has clarified and extended his original typology of diasporas that has caused so much debate. He has both responded to the controversy and shown how the concept has itself rapidly taken on new meanings associated with the complexities arising
from contemporary cultural globalization.

While retaining his interest in the historical, sociological and political aspects of diaspora, this edition has amplified the elements of the concept of diaspora concerned with social identities and post-coloniality. In particular, apparently antithetical accounts of creolization and hybridity are creatively counterposed to a diasporic consciousness. Though he deals with complex ideas and experiences, the author has made the book student-friendly by his lucid language and the use of boxes, guided reading and suggested questions at the end of each chapter.
