"This is an important ethnography, very different from the usual run-of-the-mill village ethnographies of ex-Yugoslavia, and the methodology followed is a useful and potentially important addition to the literature on transnationalism." - Michael Herzfeld, author of Cultural Intimacy: Social Poetics in the Nation-State
