This book highlights important but insufficiently documented dimensions of the experience of English-speaking Caribbean immigrants in the United States. It focuses on successes and challenges of what might be perceived as "living in two worlds." The central theme, post-migration transnational connections, is informed by new research on the topic. The thrust of the book is on trends, practices, and policies pertaining to transnational issues, and it uses both academic and applied approaches in its research. Having examined contemporary adjustment concerns of Caribbean immigrants, the authors present research findings, critical analyses, and suggest possible solutions to social and psychological problems immigrants confront as their life space is influenced by both places of origin and destination. This book fills a void in the literature pertaining to the emerging transnational experiences of Anglophone Caribbean immigrants that has not been fully explored.
