When people -- whether children, youth, and adults -- migrate, that migration is often perceived as a rupture, with people separated by great distances and for extended periods of time. But for migrants and those affected by migration, the everyday persists, and migration itself may be critical to the continuation of social life. Everyday Ruptures illuminates the wide-ranging continuities and disruptions in the experiences of children around the world, those who participate in and those who are affected by migration.

Review quote

"In Everyday Ruptures, a group of international, interdisciplinary scholars illuminate the crucial migration experiences of children and youth. Their essays introduce us to a fascinating variety of migration worlds, ranging from Britain to Ghana, Ecuador, Mexico and more. The volume vividly contributes to our understanding of globalization's human impact."
--Viviana A. Zelizer, Princeton University, author of Economic Lives: How Culture Shapes the Economy
