Studies in childhood and family in Canada
附註 Includes some edited papers previously presented at the annual meetings of the Canadian Sociological Association
"This edited volume fills a gap in the transnationalism literature by bringing together original papers that examine the transnational practices and identities of immigrant women, youth, and children in an era of global migration and neoliberalism. Specifically, the collection addresses such issues as family relations, gender and work, schooling, remittances, cultural identities, caring of children and the elderly, inter- and multi-generational relationships, activism, and refugee determination."--Introduction
