Review:

This book has become the go-to reference for anyone interested in international migration, offering a comprehensive assessment of theories, data, patterns, and processes of immigration around the world. The fifth edition offers a fresh look at developments in the first decade of the 21st century. It belongs on the bookshelf of any serious student of immigration today.' – Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University

'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, Brooklyn College, City University of New York

'I have relied on this book both as a resource for my own research and a text for my upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses on the politics of immigration. The fifth edition continues the excellent coverage of migration theories and history, the politics of immigration, and issues such as race and ethnicity, while bringing in new material on topics like the impact of climate change.' – Terri E. Givens, University of Texas at Austin

'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-orientated approach make this an invaluable resource.' – Peggy Levitt, Wellesley College

Praise for previous editions: 'Widely and deservedly praised as a major achievement ... [the authors] have their own distinctive model of the migratory process but manage at the same time to cover almost every major theme of current migration studies.' – Rainer Baubock, Ethnic and Racial Studies

'An impressive achievement. The empirical detail is striking, the historical overview comprehensive and the theoretical overview clear and easy to follow even without prior sophisticated knowledge of the theories covered.' – Helena Ekelund, Journal of Contemporary Research
