Now, and in the past, migration has provided millions with an escape route from poverty, oppression, and conflict of all kinds. Through full-color maps, graphs, and photographs, People on the Move distills a vast amount of information as it explores the ways in which humans have spread around the world, adapted to new realities, and shaped their destinations. From the history of migration to contemporary global patterns, this concise atlas illuminates a wide range of topics in a crisp, accessible text—including refugees and asylum seekers, diasporas, remittances, the brain drain, trafficking, students, retirement, return migration, and much more. Full-color maps of regions, countries, and continents vividly display trends, issues, and processes at a glance, giving a richly detailed picture of human mobility.

About the Author:

Russell King is Co-Director of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research and Professor of the Geography Department at the University of Sussex. His previous books include Mass Migration in Europe, and The History of Human Migration.

From Booklist:

This affordably priced guide to migration opens with an introduction that does an excellent job of explaining the complexities involved in studying, evaluating, and reporting on the subject. The book is divided into three main sections: a history of migration, contemporary global migration patterns, and current issues in migration. Each section begins with a one-page introduction, which is followed by a number of two-page spreads offering brief narrative, maps, and graphs. A fourth section contains data charts on “Economics & Movement” and “Migration Policy.” Although information on the history of migration can be found more completely in other sources, such as author King’s Atlas of Human Migration (Firefly, 2007), this volume’s treatment of contemporary migration patterns and issues provides intriguing starting points for further research. Suitable for public and undergraduate libraries. --Elaine Lindstrom
