The island nation of Cape Verde has given rise to a diaspora that spans the four continents of the Atlantic Ocean. Migration has been essential to the island since the birth of its nation and connections to faraway places continue to dominate its day-to-day life. This volume makes a significant contribution to the study of international migration and transnationalism by exploring the Cape Verdean diaspora through its geographic diversity and broad thematic range. Analyzing such themes in Cape Verdean transnationalism as music, language, the Internet, and gender relations, Transnational Archipelago testifies to the strikingly diverse outcomes of migration from a single, small country.
