JASSACA B. LEINAWEAVER, Adoptive Migration: Raising Latinos in Spain. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2013.
Jessaca Leinaweaver’s Adoptive Migration is a rich and insightful study
of the complex dynamics surrounding Peruvian adoption and migration in
Spain that builds upon and extends the insights from her previous book, The
Circulation of Children: Kinship, Adoption, and Morality in Andean Peru. The
novelty of Leinaweaver’s approach lies in the comparison she draws between the
seemingly incongruous phenomena of international adoption and transnational
migration. Through juxtaposing adoption and migration, Leinaweaver provides
a fresh perspective on each process and brings disparate scholarly literatures
into productive dialogue.
