Continuing Perspectives on the Black Diaspora is a response to a 1990 publication that studied the persistence and resilience of black (African) diasporic populations in the Caribbean, Latin America, North America, and the United Kingdom. In that book, the authors used the themes of persistence and resilience to interrogate the social processes and the coping repertoire of these diasporic populations. This volume investigates the often-overlooked African presence in Asia. Researchers sought to determine how many of these diasporic populations have fared in the context of political independence, globalization / economic marginalization, and the presence of ethnic conflict and institutional racism, even with positive class formations and declining significance of race in other geographical areas. Prescriptions for the continued viability of these diasporic populations are provided. India and China are undergoing a global renaissance, emerging as potentially significant economic, political, and cultural actors on the world scene. Meanwhile, ancestral Africa is still socially, politically, and economically fragmented, thereby causing a new migratory "push" to North America and Europe.

About the Author:

Aubrey W. Bonnett is professor of American studies and co-coordinator of the African-American studies program at SUNY College, Old Westbury. He has received numerous awards in New York, California, and Maryland for furthering educational achievement among the racially disadvantaged. Calvin B. Holder, Ph.D. (Harvard), is a professor of history, former history department chair, and director of the African American Studies program at the College of Staten Island/CUNY.

Review:

A serious work by an extraordinary collection of scholars that should be commended for its inclusion of the diasporas of India, Guyana, and Haiti that has received limited, at best, attention in the literature...[Bonnett and Holder] should be applauded for their commitment to produce this volume at this historical juncture... (Charles Green, professor of sociology, Hunter College/CUNY; author, Manufacturing Powerlessness in the Black Diaspora (2001); editor, Globaliza)

A brilliant collection of essays...With great depth of understanding, the authors give vivid accounts of blacks living out of Africa....I found the book fascinating. (Wendell Bell, professor emeritus of sociology, Yale University)

This volume not only assembles some of the leading scholars on this subject, but also provides cogent analysis of the multiple dynamics of Diaspora studies... provides critical assessments of context as well as content, and highlights both continuity and change in a way that transcends but also connects several disciplines. (Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, provost and professor of political science, York College, The City University of New York)
