Book Review – Family Upheaval: Generation, Mobility and Relatedness among Pakistani Migrants in Denmark Leslie Fesenmyer

Introduction

Mikkel Rytter’s Family Upheaval is a rich ethnography of Pakistani migrant families in Denmark. Focusing on relations between migrant parents and second-generation adult children, as well as with their extended family who remains in Pakistan, he considers how relatedness is negotiated generationally and transnationally and, in turn, shapes notions of identity and belonging.
