Reviews

“This book describes and analyzes migration patterns between San Cosme Mazatecochco in central Mexico and a community in the U.S. state of New Jersey. … Mexicans on the Move: Migration and Return in Rural Mexico is a short book and a quick read that provides a good overview of emigration and return from a non-traditional community in Mexico. Scholars interested Mexico-U.S. migration or return migration in general will find it stimulating.” (Claudia Masferrer, Canadian Studies in Population, Vol. 44 (1-2), 2017)
