SummaryThis atlas "includes extended coverage of Jewish diaspora patterns; the history and nature of the African, Chinese, Indian, Irish, Greek, Armenian, Gypsy, Lebanese, Palestinian, Vietnamese, and Korean diasporas; contributions of early diasporas to globalization; and the changing and contradictory attitudes of host states and populations.... Here the very definition of 'diaspora'—which embraces forced exile, voluntary migration, and 'minorities of inferiorization'—is examined in detail." —Publisher
