9780415435512: Global Diasporas: An Introduction

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.

Review:

Praise for the first edition:

'Cohen’s erudition is vast... his interpretations are solid and well informed. By and large one can only marvel at the scope of Cohen’s learning and the richness of his vocabulary.'Mark J. Miller, University of Delaware, Journal of World History, Fall 1999

'Cohen’s book offers a timely overview of diasporas. The book is also engagingly written, with Cohen’s personal anecdotes adding zing rather than self-indulgence to the analysis'Robert C. Smith, Columbia University, USA, Political Studies Quaterly, Spring 1999

'Reading this book I thought ‘Cohen is doing for diaspora what Weber did for religion’'Fran Markowiz, Ben Gurion University USA, American Anthropologist, June 1999

'A succinct but satisfying book... as Cohen convincingly demonstrates here, the diaspora wave is well and truly upon us'Sarah Ansari, Royal Holloway College, London, UK, Times Higher Educational Supplement, 6 March 1998
