"These thoughtful essays carefully focus on the constraints diaspora groups face as they engage in foreign policy in their host and home countries.The book's emphasis on the how US state actors interact with diasporic groups underscores why such groups are less threatening to US interests than is often assumed."
—Rodolfo de la Garza, author of Latinos and U.S. Foreign Policy: Lobbying for the Homeland?
"The array of case studies on Diaspora groups in the US in this edited volume provides not only critical insights into the evolution and status of those groups, but also offers astute analyses of their diverse and complex relationships with the US government as they seek to influence policy toward the homeland. Framed throughout by a well-articulated ‘divergence/convergence’ analytical approach, this volume facilitates comparative analysis and is a must-read for anyone engaged with issues related to Diaspora populations and transnational migration."
—Robert E. Maguire, author of Haiti Held Hostage
