Gabriel Sheffer, Diaspora Politics: At Home Abroad, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2003, xiii+290 pp., $44.99, ISBN 9780521811378

In his book, Gabriel Sheffer describes how people who live abroad somehow try to develop special ties with their homeland, and also try to experience the feeling of being at home even when abroad (p. XIII). Sheffer describes these human communities as “diaspora” (p. 10); the structural, organizational, and behavioral characteristics of these “diasporic” (p. 11) communities and the noticeable and visible state of all these characteristics he calls “diasporism” (p. 12).
