The Scattered Family: Parenting, African Migrants, and Global Inequality

Maria C. Marchetti-Mercer of the University of the Witwatersrand reviews The Scattered Family: Parenting, African Migrants, and Global Inequality, by Cati Coe. This book offers an analysis of Ghanaian migration to the United States, while at the same time challenging some of the more traditional Western understandings of transnational families worldwide. The author provides a historical and social contextual analysis of Ghanaian migration, allowing the reader to understand how certain cultural practices are interwoven into family life, before exploring how these are impacted by migration.
