In a perceptive and arresting analysis, Robin Cohen introduces his distinctive approach to the study of the world’s diasporas. This book investigates the changing meanings of the concept and the contemporary diasporic condition, including case studies of Jewish, Armenian, African, Chinese, British, Indian, Lebanese and Caribbean people. The first edition of this book had a major impact on diaspora studies and was the foundational text in an emerging research and teaching field. This second edition extends and clarifies Robin Cohen’s argument, addresses some critiques and outlines new perspectives for the study of diasporas. It has also been made more student-friendly with illustrations, guided readings and suggested essay questions.

Das atemberaubende Bild unserer Zivilisation in tausend Jahren Am Ende des nächsten Jahrtausends steht die Menschheit vor einem tiefgreifenden Umbruch. Sie hat nicht nur die Grenzen ihres Heimatplaneten hinter sich gelassen und das Sonnensystem bevölkert, sondern auch die Beschränkungen des eigenen Körpers überwunden: von Geburt an ist jeder Mensch Teil eines gigantischen virtuellen Netzes. Doch der vermeintliche Fortschritt erweist sich als äußerst brüchig, als aus den Tiefen des Alls eine Katastrophe droht, die die Zivilisation in einem Schlag vernichten könnte – wenn sie nicht den nächsten Schritt vollbringt und den letzten Rätseln des Universums auf die Spur kommt.

Global Indian Diasporas discusses the relationship between South Asian emigrants and their homeland, the reproduction of Indian culture abroad, and the role of the Indian state in reconnecting emigrants to India. Focusing on the limits of the diaspora concept, rather than its possibilities, this volume presents new historical and anthropological research on South Asian emigrants worldwide. From a comparative perspective, examples of South Asian emigrants in Suriname, Mauritius, East Africa, Canada, and the United Kingdom are deployed in order to show that in each of these regions there are South Asian emigrants who do not fit into the Indian diaspora concept—raising questions about the effectiveness of the diaspora as an academic and sociological index, and presenting new and controversial insights in diaspora issues.

Die Musealisierung der Migration hat Konjunktur. Mit kritischem Blick untersucht dieses Buch nun erstmals Formen und Funktionen der verstärkten Repräsentation von Migration in Museen und Ausstellungen. Wie wird die multikulturelle Gesellschaft inszeniert? Welche Interessen und Konflikte treten dabei zutage? Was lässt sich aus Projekten in Übersee für Deutschland und Europa lernen? Mit der Diskussion solcher Fragen leistet die Studie, die sich gleichermaßen an Kulturwissenschaftler, Kulturpolitiker und Museumsmacher wendet, einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Debatte um Geschichtspolitik und Erinnerung in der Einwanderungsgesellschaft.

Klar, anschaulich und mit Blick für das Wesentliche erzählt Michael Brenner die wechselvolle Geschichte der Juden, die sich über 3000 Jahre und fünf Kontinente erstreckt. Der Holocaust, die Geschichte Israels und das amerikanische Judentum kommen ebenso zur Sprache wie die Anfänge in biblischer Zeit und die reichhaltigen Spuren, die eine über tausendjährige jüdische Präsenz in Europa hinterlassen hat.

Im Zentrum steht die junge Aliya, die glaubt, dass sie auf mysteriöse Weise mit ihrer Tante Mariam verbunden ist, über die besonders eigenartige Geschichten kursieren, unter anderem, weil sie als junge Frau mit dem Familienkoch durchbrannte. Hier sieht Aliya eine Parallele zu ihrer Liebesaffäre mit dem nicht gerade standesgemäßen Khalil ... Ein Feuerwerk von sprühender Fantasie, voller Anekdoten und unwahrscheinlicher Ereignisse, ein Familienroman aus dem Herzen Pakistans.

​This volume discusses how diasporas have evolved and engaged in economic, social and cultural domains of their host and home countries across the globe. The volume is divided into six parts: Issues, Challenges and Development Experiences; Diaspora Finance and Economic Development; Knowledge Transfer and Diasporas; The Politics of Inclusion and Exclusion; Gender and Diasporas; and Representation in Film, Theatre and Literature. It is truly a global representation of diasporic engagement. Its contributions come from experts in various disciplines across the globe, and the chapters cover socioeconomic, policy-related and cultural elements in countries as far apart as New Zealand and Zimbabwe. The contributors discuss major issues related to local communities' engagement with the diaspora and diaspora--home relations in Africa, West Asia, South and South-east Asia, Australia and New Zealand, China, and the USA, providing a panoramic view of diasporic flows in the twenty-first century. The interdisciplinary thrust of the volume, together with its global focus, makes this volume useful to researchers, academics and experts from the social sciences, population sciences and development studies, as also to analysts and policymakers across the world.

"Stéphane Dufoix has written the most exhaustive, critical, and analytically sophisticated introduction to diasporas. It resists overemphasizing the transformative power of the present era of globalization and puts the formation of diasporas in a perspective of longue durée that includes previous periods of global integration and diasporic dispersion. Similarly, he avoids the 'beyond the nation-state' trend in the transnationalism literature and shows convincingly that diasporas are intimately linked, in various and contradictory ways, to the politics of the contemporary nation-state."--Andreas Wimmer, University of California ,Los Angeles "A work of exemplary range, clarity, and erudition, providing both an introduction and a deft critical reformulation. Diaspora, for Dufoix, is both a complex history and a cluster of proliferating discourses and practices whose future is undetermined. A lucid introduction and an original contribution to scholarship." --James Clifford, University of California, Santa Cruz "By carefully tracing its origins and development, Stéphane Dufoix has produced an elegant and richly rewarding guide to the concept of 'diaspora.' The word can be used both too narrowly (confining the idea to the Jewish case) and too broadly (allowing virtually all minorities to qualify). We need a sure-footed guide to the complexities and ambiguities of 'diaspora' and we have found one in Stéphane Dufoix. I warmly recommend this instructive book."--Robin Cohen, University of Oxford, and author of Global Diasporas "Stéphane Dufoix has given us a brilliant exploration of the many meanings and boundaries of the term 'diaspora'. Its far longer and diverse history than is commonly thought will come as a surprise to some. Dufoix's theoretical and analytical engagement with the term, and the erudition he brings to it, are an invitation to a whole new debate."--Saskia Sassen, author of Territory, Authority, Rights: From Medieval to Global Assemblages "In Diasporas Stéphane Dufoix gives us an excellent introduction to and overview of a fascinating and very complex topic. Considering this phenomenon from a variety of perspectives, including etymological, historical, and cultural, he shows how different populations and groups of scholars have used the idea of diaspora to conceptualize their own identities, and the strengths and weaknesses of using the concept of diaspora to do so. Dufoix's discussion of space and contemporary virtual communities is particularly fascinating. This is a very welcome addition to an ever-growing literature."--Tyler Stovall, University of California, Berkeley
