520    "A North Caucasian ethnic group that has been largely 
       obscured in world history as a result of their expulsion 
       from their homeland by Tsarist Russia in the 1860s, 
       Circassians now comprise significant communities not only 
       in the Northwest Caucasus but also in Turkey, Syria, 
       Jordan, Europe and the US. The Circassian Diaspora 
       investigates how a community of impoverished migrants has 
       evolved into a well-connected and politically active 
       diaspora. This book explores the prominent role 
       Circassians played during the Turco-Greek War or the 
       'Turkish National Liberation War of 1919-1922,' and 
       examines the changing nature of Circassians' relations 
       with the Turkish and Russian states, as well as the new 
       actors of Caucasian politics such as the US, the EU, and 
       Georgia. Suggesting that the Circassian case should be 
       studied alongside those of the Jews, Armenians and other 
       diasporas whose formation is fundamentally tied up to a 
       violent detachment from their homeland, and arguing that 
       Circassian diaspora politics is not a post-Soviet 
       phenomenon but has a history dating back to early 20th 
       century, this book will be of interest to scholars and 
       researchers of Diaspora Studies, History, and Politics"--
