About this item

The term diaspora was used in antiquity, and became attached to the Jewish community during the third century, says Dufoix, but beginning in the late 20th century, its meaning diffused and it could refer to any community that maintained cultural ties even as they were scattered across a globalized world. He traces the history of the word--its evolving meaning and application--through sections on from the word to the concept, Cham dispersed: from the Jewish model to the reversal, and the name of the global.
