This book is intended to fill in a gap in the study of modern ethno-national diasporas. Thus, against the background of current trends - globalization, democratization, the weakening of the nation-state and massive transstate migration, it examines the politics of historical, modern and incipient ethno-national diasporas. It argues that unlike the widely accepted view, ethno-national diasporism and diasporas do not constitute a recent phenomenon. Rather, this is a perennial phenomenon whose roots were in antiquity. Some of the existing diasporas were created in antiquity, some during the Middle Ages and some are modern. An essential aspect of this phenomenon is the endless cultural-social-economic and especially political struggle of these dispersed ethnic groups that permanently reside in host countries away from their homelands to maintain their distinctive identities and connections with their homelands and other dispersed groups of the same nation. While describing and analyzing the diaspora phenomenon, the book sheds light on theoretical questions pertaining to current ethnicity and politics.

Laguerre proposes a relationship among migrants and their home society that transcends current views in migration studies. The relationship among Haitians who live outside Haiti reflects a web rather than a radial relationship with the home country; Haitian migrants communicate among themselves and the home country simultaneously. In viewing the Haitian diaspora from a global perspective, the author reveals a new theory of interconnectedness in migration, which marks a significant move away from transnationalism.

Welche Rolle spielen Flüchtlingsgemeinschaften bei der Finanzierung von Bürgerkriegen? Am Beispiel der Bürgerkriege in Eritrea und Sri Lanka untersucht Katrin Radtke das transnationale Beziehungsgeflecht zwischen den bewaffneten Gruppen und den Flüchtlingen in der Diaspora. Auf der Grundlage mehrmonatiger Feldforschungsaufenthalte in beiden Konfliktländern beschreibt sie, mit welchen Strategien die Flüchtlinge moralisch unter Druck gesetzt werden. Eine ursprünglich freiwillige Gabe wird so zu einer Pflichtabgabe für den bewaffneten Kampf.

Ethnizität und Migration gehören mittlerweile zu den Grundthemen der Soziologie. Vor dem Hintergrund einer genuin wissenssoziologischen Perspektive diskutieren die Autorinnen und Autoren des Bandes die Verbreitung von Ethnizität als soziologisches Konzept sowie dessen Verwendungsmöglichkeiten im Kontext von Migration. Dabei wird Ethnizität als gleichermaßen soziales wie kognitives Phänomen begriffen, als prinzipiell kontingentes Beobachtungs- und Deutungsmuster der sozialen Welt. Folglich bezeichnet Ethnowissen die Gesamtheit der gesellschaftlichen Kommunikationsprozesse und kollektiven Wissensbestände, die für die Herstellung und Deutung ethnischer Differenzierungen verwendet werden. Neben deutschsprachigen Originalbeiträgen präsentiert der Band wichtige Texte der amerikanischen Diskussion erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung.
