Second-Generation Transnationalism and Roots Migration represents
the first comprehensive study of second-generation
transnationalism, exploring the manner in which the children of
migrants grow up amid travel back and forth between the country of
origin and the country of immigration, while at the same time
forming social attachments locally with people of other origins.
Presenting rich empirical data gathered among second-generation
Italians in Switzerland and southern Italy, and drawing on studies
undertaken in other parts of Europe and in North America and
Australia, this book investigates why as adults, members of the
second generation maintain diverging transnational relations, with
some sharing their parents' transnational ties and fostering social
relations with co-ethnics, whilst others distance themselves from
co-ethnics and rarely visit their country of origin. Yet others
decide to relocate to their country of origin, a phenomenon the
book conceptualizes as 'roots migration'. A rigorous exploration of
the complex interplay of political, cultural and socio-economic
factors in shaping the intergenerational reproduction of
transnational ties, Second-Generation Transnationalism and Roots
Migration will appeal to sociologists, anthropologists and
geographers, with interests in migration and ethnicity, and the
interrelationship of transnationalism and integration in
