When are immigrants ‘us’? When are they ‘them’? Waldinger implores readers to reframe the debate from a before-after dichotomy to a new transnational approach, revealing migrants to be here, there, and in-between at all stages of their migration tenure… The book’s real strength is in the elegance of the author’s argument, supported by evidence that transnationalism itself is not static but an ongoing dialectic.—R. A. Harper, Choice

With this beautifully written and prodigiously researched book, Roger Waldinger invites us to reconsider what it means to be an immigrant. Insightfully informed by commonalities with the past and by new developments of the last few decades, Waldinger shows that cross-border connections have always been with us, but that they are developing in exciting new ways.—John D.

Hagan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
