Hometown Transnationalism: Long Distance Villageness among Indian Punjabis and North African Berbers

Martin Evans of the University of Chester reviews Hometown Transnationalism: Long Distance Villageness among Indian Punjabis and North African Berbers by Thomas Lacroix. Collective remittances, that is to say development initiatives carried out by immigrant groups for the benefit of their place of origin, have been attracting growing attention from both academics and policy makers. Focusing on hometown organisations, this book analyzes the social mechanics that are conducive to collective transnationalism.
