Transnationalism refers to multiple ties and interactions linking people or institutions across the borders of nation-states. This single-authored book project 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. The book will be published in the ‘Key Ideas’ series by Routledge (New York and London) at the end of 2008.
