Review:

"An accessible and well-written introduction to contemporary migration. The breadth of coverage, encompassing all regions of the world, and the erudition of the authors make the book stand above the competition. In the fourth edition, the new chapter on migration and the development of sending countries is especially welcome as an antidote to parochial views that focus solely on the receiving countries."--Alejandro Portes, Director, Center for Migration and Development, Princeton University "The Age of Migration has rightly established itself as the indispensable guide for readers seeking to understand migration around the world. In this superb fourth edition, the authors not only bring us up to date on the latest trends and statistics; they also draw on their wealth of experience and knowledge to trace out the influence of key social, political, and economic changes that have unfolded recently in different world regions."--Douglas S. Massey, Henry G. Bryant Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Princeton University "Quite simply the best, most comprehensive and accessible textbook on international migration available today, written by two of the leading scholars in the field. Migration touches on every dimension of the increasingly globalized world in which we live, and Castles and Miller provide students and scholars alike with a framework for understanding this exceedingly complex phenomenon."--James F. Hollifield, Professor and Director, John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies, Southern Methodist University

"The fourth edition of The Age of Migration provides a comprehensive overview of crucial facets of international migration: history, trends, theories, transnational communities, control policies, integration, ethnic minorities, politics, security, and more. It should be required reading for students of international migration."--Hania Zlotnik, Director, Population Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations



"It just gets bigger and better....Reinforces the strengths of previous editions that 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."--Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal (Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal 2009-01-16)
