1 - 2 weeks availability
The traditional focus on nation-state actors cannot explain the power of pan-Islamism, organized crime syndicates, or a plethora of other forces in the modern world. Here, Yossi Shain introduces a new, more fluid concept - the 'politics of belonging.' Selecting examples of kinship networks and diasporas from a wide range of cultures, Shain illustrates the ways in which far-reaching alliances based on blood and belief penetrate borders and shape international politics.This is a major study of the impact of kinship and diasporas upon international politics.
Yossi Shain is the Romulo Betancourt Professor of Political Science at Tel Aviv University and is Professor of Government and Diaspora Politics at Georgetown University.
