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
