World-wide migration has an unsettling effect on social structures, especially on aging populations and eldercare. This volume investigates how taken-for-granted roles are challenged, intergenerational relationships transformed, economic ties recalibrated, technological innovations utilized, and spiritual relations pursued and desired, and asks what it means to care at a distance and to age abroad. What it does show is that trans-nationalization of care produces unprecedented convergences of people, objects and spaces that challenge our assumptions about the who, how, and where of care.

Review:

"The chapters are ethnographically rich, geographically diverse, and engaging. Collectively they offer a cutting-edge discussion of theory and method for analyzing how people care for their kin when migration has separated families." - Michele Gamburd, Portland State University

"This book convincingly demonstrates that care can be provided across distance, even as it may be transformed, and care relations re-negotiated... [it] is an important contribution to the growing literature on transnational aging, in providing detailed studies of its complex and multiple effects on individuals and families." - Cati Coe, Rutgers University
