What's the easiest way for my husband and I to visit my family in the US?

I am a US citizen. My husband is a Pakistani citizen. We are currently residents of the UAE.
My mother and siblings live in the US. For now, my husband and I have no intention of settling in the US. We do, however, want to visit on a reasonably regular basis.
From my preliminary research, it seems that I can't actually sponsor him for immigration unless I'm residing in the US, but that there's a real possibility INS could regard him as an overstay risk if he applies for a visitor visa. Are either of these impressions inaccurate?
So what do you do when you're an American citizen residing abroad, and want to take your non-citizen spouse on a visit home?
