Ceren Topgül of the University of Geneva reviews Family Upheaval: Generation, Mobility, and Relatedness among Pakistani Migrants in Denmark. This book investigates in great detail the ongoing transformation and turbulence in the family institution and in the meaning of “to be and to do family” among Pakistani immigrants in Denmark. Qualitative interviews conducted as part of a long ethnographic study provide the source for describing the complexity of family life on the basis of four key entry points: history, marriage, homelands, and afflictions. This book provides insight into the interaction between the micropolitics of family life and macroprocesses of national policies.
