Reviewed by Sarah J. Mahler, Florida International University
Sarah J. Mahler, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Florida International University, reviews Intimate Migrations: Gender, Family and Illegality Among Transnational Mexicans. The book is an ethnography that examines the issues faced by undocumented Mexican migrants living in the US. It examines the “intimate” side of migration: the day-to-day adjustments in relationships between spouses, parents, children and other relatives, fraught with the pressures of long-distance and the stresses of the new state and society.
