Publisher's presentation

Encompassing societies of origin and destination from around the world, these essays show 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. Many factors shape the linkages between home and destination, including conditions in the sending society, policies of the state of emigration, and geopolitics worldwide.

International in scope and sure to stir controversy, A Century of Transnationalism offers scholars and students leading-edge works that illustrate and complicate the important questions driving today's study of migration.
