This is the only study of Zoroastrian migration in modern history. It is based on archival research and fieldwork in eleven countries across six continents and on a large survey questionnaire. As well as studying the Zoroastrians for their own interest, it also sets the narrative within the context of wider studies of migrant or diasporic communities.
