Inhalt
The Changing Face of Home is the first book to examine the extent to which the children of immigrants engage in the transnational practices observed in their parents. It presents an important first round of research and dialogue on the activities and identities of the second generation vis-á-vis their ancestral homelands, and raises important questions for future research.Part I of the volume explores how the practice and consequences of transnational involvements vary by gender, country-of-origin, and life cycle stage. In Part II, the contributors comment on these findings, offering suggestions for reconceptualizing the issue and bridging analytical differences. The final set of chapters examines how home- and host-country value systems shape how second generation immigrants construct their identities and the economic, social, and political communities to which they ultimately express allegiance.
