Even in this age of free-flowing global information, capital, and people, sovereign states and boundaries remain the hallmark of the international order---a fact which is especially clear from the events of September 11th and the War on Terrorism. The Frontier of Loyalty is the first book to closely analyze the influence of exiles—a distinctly transnational group—on international relations. In hisexpansive introduction to this new edition, author Yossi Shain asks,"Who is the exile?… What influence do they exert on the politics of their homeland, of their host nation, of the relations between the two?" Shain finds one answer in the subtle but pervasive influence of exiles on the new politics of global communications: a phenomenon long overlooked by IR scholars and political commentators.
