"This brilliantly argued, beautifully written book pushes migration studies in an entirely new direction. An important work, yielding lessons for both scholars and students to savor and ponder." 

      --Roger Waldinger, University of California, Los Angeles

This is a tour de force that combines nuanced ethnography with multi-sited historical analysis. The surprising centrality of 'elsewheres' in the lives of migrants is a breakthrough insight in migration studies."

              --David FitzGerald, author of Refuge Beyond Reach

"In this book, Tahseen Shams challenges the adequacy of the homeland/hostland approach, advancing our approach for understanding migration, resettlement, and transnational phenomena."

                            --Steven J. Gold, Michigan State University
