Book Cover
A Companion to Diaspora and Transnationalism

In the past, the two terms of diaspora and transnationalism have often been treated separately; this invaluable collection clearly demonstrates that the many overlaps between the two terms renders it impossible to separate them in any serious discussion of the contemporary world. Taken together, the two concepts provide a broad understanding of the full spectrum of implications that derive from the reality of the vast movements of populations, ideas, technologies, and finance in the world today.

A Companion to Diaspora and Transnationalism addresses this complex conceptual tangle through essays by leading scholars in the two fields, which offer a wide range of issues, topics, and methodological approaches to the study of the joint subject matter. The two concepts are linked together in new and important ways, and the study demonstrates that while there is no simple resolution to these intersections, there is a need to understand how these concepts and categories articulate with and against each other.
