Chapter Summary

"Diaspora" stems from the third century before the Common Era and was popularized by the Septuagint. This chapter focuses on the concept's evolution in the twentieth century, for that evolution is a text in itself. It examines the Irish segment of the Anglo-Celtic diaspora. The concept of diaspora must be bleached of its contact-meaning, stemming from its origin as a propaganda term and that the Irish diaspora, which is among the most accurately documented of the various diasporas, has been an extremely complex affair, most especially because the Irish have been both imperialized and imperializers. Traditionally, Irish nationalism has been employed with profit by students of other nations' nationalism, because it was a lead sector.

Keywords: Anglo-Celtic diaspora; imperializers; Irish nationalism
