Summary:
In this groundbreaking new book, Mexican Hometown Associations in Chicagoac#65533;n, X#65533;chitl Bada reveals how Mexican hometown associations, groups consisting of immigrants from the same small towns, have become a surprisingly powerful force for mobilizing social change in both the United States and Mexico. By giving voice to the members of a group of Chicago-based hometown associations from the state of Michoac#65533;n, X#65533;chitl Bada draws much larger conclusions about the emergence and global impact of new transnational forms of community activism..
