This chapter presents the main topics of the book, looking at the articulation of Tibetanness among stateless Tibetans in India and how this might be changing among those Tibetans who have resettled in the United States and are becoming U.S. citizens. It also describes the methodology for the book's multisited ethnographic research. The discussion provides a background of Tibetan identity in a globalizing world, an account that rethinks diasporic identity and diaspora consciousness, and current understandings and expressions of Tibetanness at the turn of the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   Tibetans, Tibetanness, stateless Tibetans, resettlement, migration, diaspora consciousness
