Description

Edited by MaryCarol Hopkins and Nancy Wellmeier
 
From the Introduction
 
"Scholarly studies of the lives of refugees and immigrants make a unique contribution to the discipline of anthropology by examining how individuals, families, communities, and whole cultures negotiate the cultural changes necessitated by transnational migration. In these negotiation processes arise some of the most interesting and perplexing issues in anthropology: issues of individual and group decision-making, the collapse and reestablishment of ethnic and national boundaries, changing gender and generational relations, and the construction and manipulation of identities."
 
"Taken as a whole, however, this volume aims to provide anthropologists, scholars in other disciplines, social workers and other practitioners and national and international policy-makers with a more comprehsenive view of how transnational and cross-cultural negotiation take place and, ultimately, how culture changes."
