Identity, Culture, And Politics In The Basque Diaspora (BASQUE SERIES)
Beskrivelse: A comparative study of ethnic identity in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Peru, the United States, and Uruguay that illustrates the effects of globalization on the daily lives of Basques abroad.Identity, Culture, and Politics in the Basque Diaspora is political scientist Gloria Totoricagena's ground breaking examination of the remarkable endurance of Basque identity and culture in six countries of the far-flung Basque diaspora. Using the results of interviews with over eight hundred informants in the diaspora and in Euskal Herria (the Basque Country), questionnaire results, plus extensive research in archives and printed sources in all six of her study countries, Totoricagena reveals for the first time the complex universe of these dispersed Basques--the elements of their traditional culture and the institutions that have encouraged identity maintenance, the impacts on established communities of each new wave of immigrants, and the nature of ties with the homeland. She also examines the role of the new autonomous Basque Government of Euskadi in diaspora communities and the effects of double citizenship and voting rights that have been offered to these Basques.
