The study of the ancient Jewish Diaspora is developing in exciting new directions on the basis of fresh archaeological material and new frameworks of interpretation. The six studies collected in this volume have been composed by an international group of scholars at the forefront of Diaspora studies and explore key features of the cultural dynamics of the Jewish Diaspora. The introduction relates these studies to the broader field of "Diaspora studies" in current cultural anthropology. Together, they take the reader to the cutting-edge of Diaspora scholarship, and suggest new avenues for research.
