Description

In this book, two leading authorities on migration and nationhood attempt to bridge the gap between experience and analysis, looking at:

* the disorientating effects of space and time which migration creates

* how migration affects our understanding of national affiliations and the nation state

* the impact of cross national economic relations on everyday life.

The authors examine the migration of both rich and poor, crossing borders and living increasingly diasporic lives, and show how even as people move across borders, they still seek to be at home in the world through the creation of a "politics of belonging".

Reviews

'It is a tribute to the book and its authors that one is drawn in so effortlessly and accessibly into this complex, rich area of thought and study. The doubleness of the subject - culture and economics feeding into ideas of belonging and transition … -ensures it eludes definitive location, but this excellent book helps us map more fully the coordinates from here.' - Journal of Contemporary European Studies
