This introduction begins by noting that migrants are effecting political change in their country of origin and then sets the book’s agenda, which aims to document the circumstances under which a change is most likely to occur. This chapter also provides statistics of the phenomenon and particularly compelling cases of individuals. The chapter provides a map for the reader of how the book will proceed and explains the author’s case selection and how he came to choose Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador for the case studies. It also sets out the relationship of the current work to the scholarly literature and underlines the ways in which this book is different.
