How strong and how significant is the interaction between migrants and homelands in the late 20th century? Have the processes of globalization and transnational interaction produced new forms of nationalism or at least altered the old ones? By using Croatians and Slovenians in Australia as examples this book examines the extent to which migrants are influenced by historical and contemporary processes of migration mediated through political and cultural symbolism. What are the factors which influence the existence, nature and intensity of ethno-nationalism in the migrant context? The study analyses both the existence and transmission of ethno-nationalism between migrant settings and homelands and specifically deals with the transmission of ethno-nationalism sentiments across migrant generations. To understand the effects and consequences of long-distance nationalism fully the book proceeds from an analysis of nationalism's public manifestations to an analysis of the relatively private domain of diasporic ethno-communal existence.
