Summary An academic and personal journey into Albania's post-communist society, examining the links between internal and international migration in one of Europe's poorest countries. Starting from a cluster of villages in south-east Albania, the author follows rural migrants to their native urban destinations within the country as well as abroad to Thessaloniki, Greece. Migrants' lives, experiences and feelings are captured through 150 in-depth interviews, a number of group discussions and ethnographic observations.
