In this book, two leading authorities on migration and nationhood attempt to bridge the gap between experience and analysis, looking at: * the disorientating effects of space and time which migration creates * how migration affects our understanding of national affiliations and the nation state * the impact of cross national economic relations on everyday life. The authors examine the migration of both rich and poor, crossing borders and living increasingly diasporic lives, and show how even as people move across borders, they still seek to be at home in the world through the creation of a "politics of belonging".
