9781443829694: Selling One's Favourite Piano to Emigrate: Mobility Patterns in Central Europe at the Beginning of the 21st Century

International migration is a common phenomenon of the contemporary world; however, not all the aspects of migration are adequately investigated. In this book, migration is described by academics from various European countries who see it not only as an economic, but mainly as a social process. Thirteen texts, written by authors from seven countries, consider migration from various perspectives regarding its social consequences for migrants, their families and entire societies. Although the majority of the texts pertain to the Polish context (connected with Poles as migrants, but not necessarily Poland as a country), in general, the book can be qualified as an illustration of current migration from the less developed parts of the unified Europe, which impacts on the economies and societies of the European continent. A few years ago, one had to sell their favourite belonging, a piano, to collect money for the journey. These days it is much more accessible, but not less complex, and various examples from this book offer a unique insight into the variety of human flows in the contemporary world.
