The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands
Book by Roger Waldinger, University of California, Los Angeles
Reviewed by David Ley, University of British Columbia
David Ley of the University of British Columbia reviews The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands, by Roger Waldinger. 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.
