Pressestimmen"Where most research on things 'transnational' is anchored on one side of the border or the other, Transborder Lives is conceptually and empirically well grounded throughout the geographic, national, social, political, and economic spaces within which its subjects are dispersed in both Mexico and the United States."--Michael Kearney, author of Changing Fields of Anthropology: From Local to Global "Lynn Stephen's multisited ethnography insightfully unpacks globalization from below, revealing the contours of cross-border communities as they reweave the social fabrics of twenty-first-century North America."--Jonathan Fox, University of California, Santa Cruz "The aim of the book is to weave together the personal histories and narratives of indigenous transborder migrants with the larger structures that affect their lives, and to highlight their creative responses to their mobile existence...She [Stephen] has certainly achieved her stated goal of pushing the borders crossed by Zapotec and Mixtec immigrants into centre stage, and in the process has illuminated the lives of the 130 million people, who, worldwide, live outside the country where they were born, and have transgressed many borders. This engaging and well researched book will appeal to specialists on Mexico, migration and ethnicity. Its author is to be congratulated on her model, multi-site study of a complex and important issue."- Colin Clarke in Bulletin of Latin American Research, Vol. 28, No. 2, April 2009
