"This is an exciting book because it deals with a major issue of our times that is yet only poorly understood. Our authors show how transmigrants link their home countries with the countries of their sojourns, how this changes the state of affairs in both, and how we are all caught up in these changes. By looking closely at the lives of particular populations, the authors are able to illuminate important shifts and changes in the world. At the same time, they speak to issues of race, ethnicity, gender and class, and significantly alter the ways we understand them."
