“A very significant and exciting contribution to the steadily growing field of Galician cultural studies. The author skillfully examines the ways that the experiences of migration have defined and redefined Galician identity in relation to other cultures and languages, and how Galicia has been written beyond the nation.”
(Jos� Colmeiro, University of Auckland)
