Product description

This is a comprehensive social, economic, and cultural analysis of the Sri Lanka diaspora. Over one million people of Sri Lankan-origin live outside of their homeland. This is the first comprehensive study of the lives, culture, beliefs and attitudes of immigrants and refugees from this South Asian island. "The Encyclopedia of the Sri Lanka Diaspora" focuses on the socio-economic and political developments of the Sri Lanka diaspora over time and in different places, addressing core issues of demography, economy, politics, culture and future development. It also discusses topics such as long distance nationalism, citizenship, Sinhala, Tamil and Burgher disapora identities, religion and the spread of Buddhism, as well as the Sri Lankan cultural impact on other nations.
