Editorial Reviews


"This is Trager's chef-d'oeuvre, a rich study of the strong ties Yoruba migrants maintain with their hometowns in Nigeria, and pioneering explorations of the implications for development. The case studies of hometown celebrations, organizations, and individual lives are wonderful." - Josef Gugler"
