For some time in diaspora studies, attention to remittances has overshadowed the growing impact of emigrant groups both within the social and political arenas in their homelands and with regard to fundamental economic development. The authors of Diasporas and Development redress this imbalance, focusing on three core issues: the responses of diasporas to homeland conflicts, strategies for mobilizing effective homeland investment, and the positive role of direct diaspora participation in development efforts.The book combines detailed case studies with theoretical frameworks to provide a valuable foundation for further research.3 (1999): 709- 744.
