Recensies en Artikelen

"By foregrounding the negotiations that lie at the intersection of competing political and social authorities, this volume radically transforms conventional meanings of sovereignty. By separating legality from order, rules from rule, legitimacy from power, and, illegality from crime, we encounter gendered and national state effects that take shape in startling and counter-intuitive ways. The complex relation of human movement to subjectivity becomes the common axis for fine-grained empirical essays that range across Asia, from the Persian Gulf to India, from Israel to China." -- Itty Abraham, National University of Singapore|"Transnational Flows and Permissive Polities is a must-read volume exploring the subtle connections among human mobility, uneven state regulations, and complex transnational practices that enrich and challenge relationships and identities in ways rarely imagined." -- David Kyle, Executive Director of the Gifford Center for Population Studies and Associate Professor of Sociology at UC Davis "By foregrounding the negotiations that lie at the intersection of competing political and social authorities, this volume radically transforms conventional meanings of sovereignty.

Transnational Flows and Permissive Polities

Ethnographies of Human Mobilities in Asia

Dit boek is een verzameling van etnografieën over transnationale migratie en grensovergangen in Azië. Vraagstukken die betrekking hebben op mobiliteit en diaspora worden vanuit verschillende invalshoeken belicht. Uniek aan deze studie is de nadruk op onderzoek waarbij de verhalen en opvattingen van de 'mensen in beweging'en de gemeenschappen waar ze deel van uitmaken. Etnographies of Human Mobility and Permissive Polities is een must voor zowel academici, studenten, ontwikkelingswerkers en NGO's.
