    Professor Helen Sampson is the Director of the Seafarers International Research Centre based within the Cardiff School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University, UK.

    This ethnographic account of seafarers considers issues of transnationalism in the twenty-first century and discusses the detailed life experiences of migrant workers in this context. It argues for a consideration of the social space available to transnational migrant workers and suggests that the transnational experiences of migrants may be more likely to involve exclusion and alienation than an expansion of social space as a result of bi-location in more than one community.Based upon original qualitative research in three different settings, the book draws upon voyages undertaken by the author on five different working cargo ships.This highly readable book will be of interest to readers from a variety of disciplines who are interested in issues of migration, transnationalism, work, the shipping industry and globalization. It will also appeal to individuals with a connection to, or an interest in, the merchant navy.
