"I am impressed by the direction and content of this book. It offers a timely engagement with the important social science concepts of movement, place-making, and multiple-identifications. But whereas in other recent studies these notions have usually been theorized and empiricised as isolates, here they are triangulated in an intellectually original and productive way." * Tom Ryan, University of Waikato
