"In today's world on the move, it's hard to keep up with all that is changing. The Age of Migration, Fifth Edition, once again offers a comprehensive, creative roadmap to the migration field. The authors' historical perspective, regional focus, and policy-oriented approach make this an invaluable resource for beginning and advanced scholars alike."--Peggy Levitt, PhD, Department of Sociology, Wellesley College
"As international human mobility expands as a social force worldwide, The Age of Migration remains the only authoritative text on significant social, political, economic, and cultural trends in the field. The fifth edition is vital to understanding the rapidly transforming processes of international migration. More than ever, this book is de rigueur for introductory and advanced courses."--Immanuel Ness, PhD, Department of Political Science, Brooklyn College, City University of New York
Every edition of this by-now classic text on migration adds information on specific flows and gives us a more global perspective. I have used each of the prior editions in my teaching, and find this to be the most encompassing, useful, and well-conceptualized of all books with such broad coverage."--Saskia Sassen, PhD, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology, Columbia University; author of Territory, Authority, Rights
"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)
"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)
"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."
