Recommends it for: anyone
I used this text in a class by the same name and found it to be interesting and (for the most part)accessible. If you have the slightest interest in critical or post-colonial theory, I'd recommend giving Theorizing Diaspora a read. There is some serious scholarship here, but nothing so heavy that even a dilettante such as myself would be off put by it.

Very solid edited volumes. Highly recommend to those who need an introduction to diasporic theories and theorization
Very good book for explaining diasporas. It refers to globalization, to transnational identity, to several minorities, to hybridity. I particularly liked R Radhakrishnan, Lisa Lowe, Stuart Hall and Kobena Mercer. Anyway the other authors of articles are worthy to read too, definitely. I read the entire book, but I focused on ethnic problems and particularly on defining identity when smb belongs to a diaspora.
Phenomenal book explaining the theory underlying diaspora. Found it to be incredibly informative and detailed.
