Reviews and Features

" Truly excellent and extremely useful... a superb introduction to international migration studies. This well-designed collection of essays by first-rate scholars goes well beyond the textbook level. It provides the most up-to-date review of migration theories and of major types of moves." - Joaquín Arango, Professor of Sociology, Complutense University of Madrid.

"Many of the most eminent scholars of international migration are represented in this volume. Anchored in the European experience of post-war migration, but with essays that extend far beyond, readers will benefit from up-to-date and reflective essays on the key topics in the field." -- Robin Cohen, Emeritus Professor and former Director, International Migration Institute, University of Oxford

"The IMISCOE network includes many of the world's foremost immigration scholars. The crème de la crème of them have contributed to this extraordinarily valuable book which I will be assigning to my students for years to come." -- Mark J. Miller, Professor of Political Science and International Relations, University of Delaware, and author of The Age of Migration
