A range of topics are covered, including the impact of lodging type upon life strategies; understudied elements in transnational relationships; gender roles in transnational communication; multinational relationships; the role of polymedia in the formation of couples; andthe lives of the children of Romanian transnational families. The author presents the experiences of 'leavers' as well as of 'stayers'; of the 'highly-skilled' as well as the 'low-skilled'; that of women and that of men - through individual testimonies and couple interviews. Romanian Transnational Families will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines, including sociology, politics, anthropology and geography.
