Overview

The very idea of diaspora--which embraces forced exile, voluntary migration, and "minorities of inferiorization"--is thoroughly examined in this atlas, along with extended coverage of displaced cultures throughout the world: the Jewish diaspora patterns, and the history and nature of the African, Chinese, Indian, Irish, Greek, Armenian, Gypsy, Lebanese, Palestinian, Vietnamese, and Korean diasporas. The contributions of early diasporas to globalization, as well as the changing and contradictory attitudes of host states and populations, are also explored.

Absorbing detailed text, full-color maps, and a black-and-white iconography of synagogues, churches, and other cultural markers make this a fascinating and invaluable reference book for anyone interested in the history and diversity of cultures, and a vital tool for understanding today's refugee crisis.
