This book presents ground-breaking theoretical, and empirical knowledge to produce a fine-grained and encompassing understanding of the costs and benefits that different groups of Asian migrants, moving between different countries in Asia and in the West, experience. The contributors-all specialist scholars in anthropology, geography, history, political science, social psychology, and sociology-present new approaches to intersectionality analysis, focusing on the migrants' performance of their identities as the core indicator to unravel the mutual constituitivity of cultural, social, political, and economic characteristics rooted in different places, which characterizes transnational lifestyles. The book answers one key question: What happens to people, communities, and societies under globalization, which is, among others, characterized by increasing cultural disidentification?

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The anthology is mainly recommended for those having a research interest in Asia and for those who are engaged with intersectional analyses. The articles are all focusing on migration issues in a specific geographical region in Asia ... . worth reading to gain an insight into and an understanding of a region which not only contains a large proportion of the world population itself but which also possesses and provokes interesting research questions as it becomes increasingly diversified and transnationalised ... ." (Tobias Hubinette, Nordic Journal of Migration Research, Vol. 3 (2), 2013)
