Editorial Reviews


"We hope the book will find its way onto the syllabi of a variety of under-graduate courses on immigration." - (Contemporary Sociology 39(2) 2010.)

"a readable study emphasizing the dynamics of the vibrant U.S.-Mexican border region." - Multicultural Review

"Four Generations of Norteños. New Research from the Cradle of Mexican Migration is
written with rigorous clarity and each article is thematically connected to the book's effort to provide an in-depth assessment of the complex migration of Tlacuitapeños. Understanding the causes and the consequences of migration is imperative not only for the Latin American community of scholars and the general public, but also for all those who live in the United States and in Mexico." - Latino Studies

"Each essay contains new, fascinating, unexpected nuggets of fresh data while also confirming established patterns, whether discussing border-crossing strategies in the post-9/11 era, putting down roots in satellite communities in California, or long-distance communication practices and increasing (though uneven) use of technology across the entire spectrum of transnational migrant experiences and challenges. In short, there is not a boring chapter or irrelevant topic raised." - Choice 2009

"a major contribution to the literature" - European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies

Cornelius is director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (CCIS), Distinguished Professor of Political Science, and Gildred Professor of US-Mexican Relations at the University of California, San Diego.
