'This timely volume presents a set of compelling ethnographic accounts that refocus our attention on processes of place-making in studies of movement. Tracing the means by which people make the places where they have settled matter to them, Local Lives underlines the importance of fully recognizing a fundamental dimension of migration that is too often elided in contemporary transnational studies.' Vered Amit, Concordia University, USA 'Opening up new perspectives on the topic of migration, one of today's most challenging social issues, what is particularly important is the comparative view this book contains through concrete studies of a wide variety of migrant experiences. Dealing with attachment to place, but reflecting on what it means to break up and move, it is a book that has important interdisciplinary implications.' Helge Ronning, University of Oslo, Norway 'This edited volume [...] constitutes a timely and precious contribution to the emerging field of mobility studies.' Anthropological Forum
