This volume, edited by Susan Ossman, deals with issues of great importance and relevance for our era. In an era where there is a widespread preoccupation with the quantitative categorisation of migrants' personal or collective characteristics, this book offers a quite different perspective which gives emphasis to subjectivity, identity fluidity, representations of mobility and space, and culture. Overall, this book is a valuable resource offering an alternative perspective on migration. It makes for a wonderful read! (Theodoro Iosifides Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, July 1, 2009)
Because of the thematic...emphasis on Morocco, this collection will be of particular interest to social scientists working in the region, but it also makes a strong contribution to anthropology, the literature on migration, and critical media studies. Scholars of religion will find useful the essays demonstrating the complex facets of religious and cultural identity. The nuanced way many of the authors critique the notion of cosmopolitanism through lived experience is refreshing, and the diverse perspectives highlight the complex social positions of serial migrants in a world where movement among multiple cultures does not imply rootlessness but rather complex attachments to space and place. (MESA Bulletin)
