A Century of Transnationalism : Immigrants and Their Homeland Connections, Paperback / softback Book

A Century of Transnationalism : Immigrants and Their Homeland Connections Paperback / softback

Edited by Nancy L. Green, Roger Waldinger

Part of the Studies of World Migrations series


This collection of articles by sociologically minded historians and historically minded sociologists highlights both the long-term persistence and the continuing instability of home country connections.

Encompassing societies of origin and destination from around the world, A Century of Transnationalism shows that while population movements across states recurrently produce homeland ties, those connections have varied across contexts and from one historical period to another, changing in unpredictable ways.

Any number of factors shape the linkages between home and destination, including conditions in the society of immigration, policies of the state of emigration, and geopolitics worldwide.

Contributors: Houda Asal, Marie-Claude Blanc-Chaleard, Caroline Douki, David FitzGerald, Nancy L.
