Transnationalism

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Mar 30, 2009 - Social Science - 206 pages

'Transnationalism' refers to multiple ties and interactions linking people or institutions across the borders of nation-states.

This book surveys the broader meanings of transnationalism within the study of globalization before concentrating on migrant transnational practices. Each chapter demonstrates ways in which new and contemporary transnational practices of migrants are fundamentally transforming social, political and economic structures simultaneously within homelands and places of settlement.

Transnationalism provides a much-needed single, clear and condensed text concerning a major concept in academic and policy discourse today.

The book is for advanced undergraduate students, postgraduates and academics.
