Diasporas and Transnational Communities:
a Bibliographical and Study Guide

Edited by Robin Cohen

With the assistance of Selina Cohen, Katrin Hansing, Dimitrina Mihaylova, Ali Rogers, Steven Vertovec and Emma Newcombe

This is the ongoing, interim version of a bibliographical and study guide devoted to a discussion of diasporas and other transnational communities. When complete it will be published in hard copy form in the UCL Press, Global diasporas series.

Most of the current categories are ‘ethnic’ (for example, ‘Poles’, ‘Lebanese’ or ‘Turks’) but the material currently filed under ‘General, theoretical and comparative’ and ‘As yet unclassified’ will gradually be redefined as we become more sophisticated and aware of the main divisions in the field.

Each category comprises:

  • A brief discussion
  • A list of bibliographical sources for the particular category
  • A list of research resources and organizations
  • A list of web sites
  • A list of books and articles

For student purposes a small number of the ‘best’ (most interesting, accessible or profound) books and articles will be annotated. If you are new to this field go to these sources first. Clicking on an item in the contents below will take you directly to each category.

We are aware that there are many omissions and welcome comments, corrections and additions. Please email them to emma.newcombe@anthro.ox.ac.uk (Your contribution will, of course, be acknowledged in the final published version.)
