"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.”
Focusing mainly on the European experience including Eastern Europe, this important volume offers an advanced introduction to immigrant incorporation studies from a historical, empirical and theoretical perspective. Beyond incorporation theories, renowned scholars in the field explore incorporation in action in different fields, policy issues and normative dimensions.
