Example text

Formally, the idea of community tends to privilege homogeneity and stasis while the idea of centre/ periphery privileges variation and change. And, in practice, they have frequently been used against one another, community being the principal socio-spatial image invoked by modernization theory and centre/periphery, of course, serving as a crucial counter-image for dependency theory and the world systems approach. But their opposition should not be exaggerated. 9 Indeed, even when the two images have been in conflict, they have supported one another negatively, each being treated as the only viable alternative to the other.

Almost every family had members who were or had been abroad; the local economy depended heavily on the influx of dollars; and many of the area’s small farming operations continued only because they were sustained by migrant remittances. Concomitantly, the municipio has become part of a transnational network of settlements and, in so doing, has significantly modified its status as a marginal site within a purely national hierarchy of places. Over the years, migrants have established several outposts in the United States, by far the largest being the one they have formed amidst a rapidly growing Latino neighbourhood in Redwood City, an urban area on the northern edge of California’s famous Silicon Valley.

19 Those living in Aguililla, for example, are as much affected by events in Redwood City as by developments in the municipio itself, and the same is true in reverse. Consequently, people monitor what is happening in the other parts of the circuit as closely as they monitor what is going on immediately around them. Indeed, it is only by recognizing the transnational framework within which Aguilillans are operating that we can properly appreciate the logic of their actions. Thus, people in the United States may spend large amounts of time and money trying to obtain papers without ever seeking citizenship because it is as Mexican citizens with the right to ‘permanent residence’ that they will be best equipped to move back and forth between the two countries.
