Abstract (summary)

Analyzes remittances’ effects on home communities, household strategies for investment, the link between migrant circulation patterns and family decision-making, and impact of “migrodollars” and migration upon community structure; 1980s and 1990s, chiefly. Focuses on transnational communities in Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and particularly on Santa Ana del Valle, Mexico; defines “transnational communities” as those where people live between their home community and another community.
