Ethnic Diasporas & Great Power Strategies in Asia by Robert G. Wirsing, Rouben Azizian

Twelve outstanding regional specialists assess the importance of overseas, migrant, or "diaspora" ethnic minorities in the strategic calculations of three Asian great powers—India, China, and Russia—in these essays. Drawing in part on papers presented at the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies in Honolulu, Hawaii, the studies provide both fresh descriptive data on overseas ethnic minorities as well as penetrating analyses of how these three Asian giants seek to take advantage of the diaspora phenomenon in their regional and global foreign policies.
