International migration presents the human face of globalization. Roger Waldinger addresses a paradox at its core: emigrants departing one society become immigrants in another, tying those two societies together. He explains how interconnections between place of origin and destination are built and maintained and why they eventually fall apart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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. Skrentny, University of California, San Diego
This book makes a valuable theoretical and methodological contribution to the underdeveloped migration scholarship on the social, political, and economic connections between the poor places of origin of immigrants and the rich countries of their destination.--Jacqueline M. Hagan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
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" (10/01/2015)
