This collection addresses the recent rebirth of interest in immigrant letters. As these letters are increasingly seen as key, rather than incidental, documents in the interpretations of gender, age, social class, and ethnicity/nationality, the scholars gathered here demonstrate a diversity of new approaches to their interpretation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Rarely does a historical study illuminate subject, methodology, and theory all at once. Letters Across Borders is just such a book. It is a marvelous collection of essays that should be read and re-read by every historian who works in migration studies and indeed by all scholars who seek to understand and interpret the human experience through personal correspondence.' - Kerby A. Miller, University of Missouri-Columbia

'...a coherent, thoughtfully structured and enlightening overview. Philosophical reflections are blended with methodological discussions and empirical studies, creating an unprecedented and broad-based context within which to study migrant epistolarity...It is a long overdue addition to the historiography of migration and should be obligatory reading for every historian who seeks to get to grips with the pitfalls and rewards of interpreting personal correspondence.' - Marjory Harper, English Historical Review
