9780472030422: The Frontier of Loyalty: Political Exiles in the Age of the Nation-State

Paperback edition of the pathbreaking book on the role of exiles in international relations, with a new foreword (including material on the war in Iraq).

"In a world increasingly shaped by transnational organizations and processes, this is a timely and welcome subject, and Yossi Shain provides an informative overview."
--Rogers Brubaker, Harvard University, in The American Journal of Sociology

"Engrossing."
--International Affairs

"Mr. Shain is at his best stitching together information that hitherto had not been systematically related to analytical themes. . . . A major contribution to understanding the patterns and complexities of the politics of those at home abroad."
--International Migration Review

"The Frontier of Loyalty is the first comprehensive and theoretically oriented study of exile politics; the types of exile activity; the relation to both the home and host governments; and the difficulties and ambiguities of exile politics, particularly the struggle for legitimacy as spokesman for the opposition at home and for recognition from the outside."
--- Juan J. Linz, Yale University

"An ingenious and sensitive analysis of political exiles as 'voice from without,' which contributes to our understanding of the transnational character of contemporary politics."
--- Aristide R. Zolberg, New School for Social Research

"Drawing upon a wide literature on contemporary political exiles, Yossi Shain presents a sophisticated, learned and sensible survey of their place in political life today. More important, his meditation on the role of exiles proves such essential political categories as legitimacy,
national loyalty, and opposition in the modern state. One test of any work of scholarship is whether it enhances our understanding of concepts that we have previously taken for granted. By this measure, Shain's book passes with flying colors."
--- Michael R. Marrus, University of Toronto

From Publishers Weekly:

Political exile is an all too common condition of our century. This dense but rewarding study by an Israeli political scientist at Tel Aviv University shuttles back and forth between countries and eras to uncover common patterns running through the exile experience. A country may brand exiles living on its soil as enemies, as the French Vichy regime did in prohibiting Spanish Republican activity; alternately, as Shain notes, the host country may serve as a territorial base for exiles' operations--witness the PLO in Southern Lebanon. Shain looks at Chilean socialists in East Germany, the Dalai Lama's Tibetan government-in-exile based in India, Juan Peron holed up in Madrid, rival Iranian exile factions bent on overthrowing Khomeini. His cross-cultural survey helps explain how political refugees manage to win loyalty and recognition for their causes in the face of immediate measures against them and opposition from their native countries.
