The role of ethnic diasporas in world politics is increasing. Yet the study of these important non-state actors has been neglected in the literature. This study demonstrates the impact of diasporas on interstate relations and forms some propositions regarding the conditions affecting the influence exerted by diasporas. Problems and dilemmas facing modern diasporas are also reviewed, and a comparison is made by three archetypical diasporas: the Greek, the Jewish and the Armenian. The book offers insights into the study of diasporas from international relations theory, comparative politics, history and area studies.
