The Frontier Of Loyalty: Political Exiles In The Age Of The Nation-State

Drawing upon a wide range of examples, the author-an Israeli political scientist-examines the varied roles of political exiles as leaders of a dispersed opposition. Much of their difficult struggle involves seeking recognition and loyalty so as to achieve legitimacy. Ambiguities may arise when loyalty to a government in power is challenged by loyalty to the principles the nation espouses. The analysis in this sophisticated work is original and stimulating; the subject, at a time of growing concern over human rights, is highly topical.
