(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Greek Diaspora and Migration since 1700, Society, Politics and Culture, edited by Dimitris Tziovas, University of Birmingham, UK, Ashgate, May 2009. The Greek diaspora is one of the paradigmatic historical diasporas. Though some trace its origins to ancient Greek colonies, it is really a more modern phenomenon. Diaspora, exile and immigration represent three successive phases in Modern Greek history and they are useful vantage points from which to analyse changes in Greek society, politics and culture over the last three centuries.
