Diasporas have become a visible phenomenon of our world. Wherever we go in the major metropolitan world centres, we run into not only China and India "Towns", but we also witness the individual faces of old and recent immigrants from a variety of other nations flooding the airports, shopping centres and city parks. The impact of these "worlds on the move" on globalisation, migration and identity negotiations is the subject matter of this book.
