Minority histories are increasingly emphasised in a world in which intense globalisation has had the paradoxical effect of variously entrenching and obliterating concepts of ethnic communities and cultures. They are histories of adaptation and of maintaining cultural, ethnic and national identities in an environment that both challenges and reinforces these sociological and historical markers. Minority histories are also frequently seen as previously neglected in relation to the histories of "large civilizations", a concept which has lost its salience in all but the popular imagination.
