Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Call of the Homeland: Diaspora Nationalisms, Past and Present contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, notes on the contributors, and the introduction of the book. The book is divided into four parts. The first part considers the historical origins and pre-modern cultural resources of modern diasporas' attachment to notions of homeland. The second part looks at transformations and continuities in the orientations and behaviour towards the homeland of the three classic diasporas, the Jewish, Armenian and Greek. The third part examines closely four modern diasporas—three with and one without an independent homeland—and the ways in which a) these diasporas have related to their homelands and b) the homelands have related to them: the Irish, Turkish, Sikh and Ukrainian. The final part explores the role of religion in linking diasporic communities with homelands.

Keywords:Armenian; Greek; homeland; Irish; Jewish; modern diasporas; Sikh; Turkish; Ukrainian
