'This volume is important for two reasons. First, it challenges the social sciences to adopt a more functional and dynamic view of culture and the "social" such that difference and culture are incorporated outside of traditional bounded unit classifications. Second, the author has presented a coherent argument for understanding migration as a process that stems from global turbulence in politics, economics and social relations. This volume would make an excellent addition to upper-year undergraduate and gradute papers in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and geography.' David Timothy Duval, Sociological Research Online
'The volume's greatest strength is its review and critique of cultural theorists ... It is a provocative volume that attempts to shift the paradigms through which traditional social science views migration by introducing new strands of scholarship.' International Migration
