About the Author


Praise For…


"The strengths of previous editions…have been noted by reviewers and readers over the last decade and a half: a text which is authoritative yet eminently readable; a wide span of case studies from the main theatres of immigration around the world; an appropriate sense of history; useful maps...instructive tables and textboxes; an extensive bibliography, and a thorough index. The way the text is written--with a lack of jargon and with key concepts carefully explained--makes it suitable for lay readers and especially valuable for undergraduates, but its wide range and authoritative voice make it equally useful as a primer for graduate students and ready reference for academics and migration experts." (on the fourth edition)

— Ethnic and Racial Studies

"A synthetic, widely ranging, and accessible account of international migration, which goes beyond the where, when, and why to speak to the complex ways in which migration changes society....The real contribution of this book is...its linking of migration and social change in a historic and constructive way." (on the first edition)

— Annals of the Association of American Geographers

"A lively volume that nicely weaves together the literatures on international migration and ethnic relations….This is an informative, stimulating overview of international migration and links with critical issues surrounding the emergence of multicultural societies. The book will appeal to a wide audience. It is written in a highly readable, fluid style….It is multidisciplinary in nature and could be used in a variety of instructional settings ranging from undergraduate courses to graduate seminars." (on the first edition)

— Growth and Change
