Norma Fuentes, Professor of Sociology at Fordham University, reviews Dominican Migration: Transnational Perspectives. The book is about transnationalism among Dominican migrants of different citizenship, class, gender, etc. It addresses how the diaspora has affected political and economic participation and how identity is constructed among lower and upper class Dominicans. In regards to the identity formation, the book uses case studies in Providence and Miami and finds that lower and upper class individuals participate in the community in a more transnationalist manner than the middle class.
