The contributors investigate the inter-relationships between migrant remittances and the family in Asia. They argue that, in the context of Asian transnational labour migration where remittances tend to become a primary currency of care, the making or breaking of the family unit is mainly contingent on how individuals handle remittance processes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume, edited by Hoang and Yeoh, is a valuable addition to qualitative research on impacts of migration, building upon previous works that examine local-global networks responsible for, as well as created through, processes of migration. ... this book pays particular attention to the intertwining of the symbolic and economic significance of remittances, and its impact on the family unit. ... This is a highly recommended text for scholars researching migration, gender, Asia and international development." (Aparna Parikh, Progress in Development Studies, Vol. 17 (3), 2017)
