Brief substance This volume pioneers in the study of immigrant transnational organizations by including eighteen different immigrant nationalities with organizations in the US and Europe. The case studies follow a common format and are based on interviews, questionnaires and observation in both sending and receiving countries. Data are provided on the characteristics of membership and leadership, age of association and its activities. Accounts of sending state initiatives to build relationships with their diaspora are particularly interesting, as is the contrast between the US general reluctance to promote or financially support immigrant association initiatives in their home country and the general practice of European states to do so. The issues of the permanence and importance of transnational organizations are raised since these require more data and measures than the chapters provide. This is a well-executed and stimulating volume that is a credit to the chapter authors and to the editors
