      This isn't a subject I ever knew existed until I was walking by a display at my school library and picked it up. I found it interesting to learn about all the different ways we see ourselves and belong to groups, but it made me a little sad to see the exclusion involved in that too.It's a quick read, though it does get a little repetitive after awhile, just variations on a theme. If you have an interest in the topic or are doing any kind of research, I would say you wouldn't miss out on anything [...]

      Useful for an introduction to the concepts related to diaspora and transnationalism. A bit convoluted in the essay organization however.
