About the Author
A sophisticated ethnography of female Moroccan migrants in Spain in which the concept of honor (once the defining attribute of Mediterranean study) is impressively rekindled to probe and frame the sociocultural changes and accommodations necessitated by transnational marriage. In these respects and more, Pham’s book is a most welcome contribution to anthropology and its emerging study of social institutions under cross-cultural pressure in transnational space and time.
