The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands

The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands

David Ley of the University of British Columbia reviews The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands. This book is written by an author critical of the 25-year history of immigration research with a transnational perspective, whose results he finds “disappointing” (5) and leaving “much to be desired” (13). In its place, he presents a “cross-border” framework for analysis of international migration, an argument advanced primarily through use of existing transnational literature rather than original empirical material.
