With current debates about comprehensive immigration reform at the forefront of U.S.-American politics, Wendy Roth enters this conversation at a critical juncture by exploring the relationship between migration and racial identity. The crux of this monograph examines how migration influences perceptions of race and racial identity within a transnational context. Rather than highlighting how migrants learn about and adjust to U.S. racial schemas, Roth contends that, just as transnationalism allows the transmission of language and culture etc., the discourse on race and race relations flows between both sending and host societies.
