I soon received emails and letters from over 50 older people, as well as a few care service providers. Drawing research encompassing four different continents — Europe, North America, Africa and Asia — to offer a blend of studies, this timely volume contrasts with previous research which is heavily informed by clinical approaches and concepts, as the contributions in this book come from various disciplinary approaches such as sociology, geography, psychology, politics and anthropology. This timely book explores this neglected subject in an era of ageing and more mobile societies and contains ground-breaking studies of migration flows of older people in North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, South Asia, and Australia, to explain how and why people in later life return to their country of origin. Others talked of always feeling English, Scottish or Welsh, and not truly belonging in Australia: Australia has been very kind to us but my wife and I still seem unable to get England out of our system.

Ageing immigrants and the question of return: new answers to an old dilemma? This chapter is based partly on an empirical study of the circumstances of 442 Italian and Spanish immigrants nearing retirement, carried out as part of the Swiss National Research Programme on Ageing, and also based on qualitative interviews carried out among Italian and Spanish older migrants in Switzerland, in three different periods: 1995-96, 2000 and 2008.

What did surprise me was their willingness to open up about the emotional and psychological effects. By exploding the forced-voluntary dichotomy, it analyses the continuum of experiences of return and the effect of time, the factors that affect the return process and associated mobilities, and their multiple links with returned migrants' wellbeing or psychosocial issues. In the process, it offers a thoughtful contribution to broader debates on what it means for migrants to belong and achieve inclusion in society. Signaling a major paradigm shift, Cultures in Contact creates an English-language map of human movement that is not Atlantic Ocean-based. This book will make an excellent contribution to research on acculturation, cross-cultural transition and adaptation, identity and migration. Each aspect of the life of an immigrant is explored, shedding light on the complexities of work, friendship, sex, marriage, aging, religion, and politics.
