The study of international migration and ethnic relations is rapidly expanding in the social sciences, in the humanities, and in law and medicine at universities around the world. Theories and methods are borrowed from many disciplines, but with little cross-fertilization, thereby leaving many core issues out. This authoritative book fills a gap by providing an expertly integrated overview of international migration from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives. Throughout the book, South to North migration is used as the main example.The authors, leading experts in their fields, ask provocative new questions such as the counterfactual, `Why do people not migrate?' and address old questions in fresh ways in a language accessible for students in a range of disciplines. Does migration from less developed countries stimulate or obstruct development? Does development reduce or increase the flows of migration? What are the dynamics of a migration process? Geography, economics, political science, social anthropology and sociology all inform this book, which is certain to become an established text in migration studies.

Review:

“Tomas Hammar and his associates . . . have produced a book on migration theory that avoids the pitfalls of pressing the topic into the procrustean beds of general paradigms, be they rational choice theories or agentless variants of system analysis . . . It is a genuinely multidisciplinary effort to provide analytical tools and hypotheses for empirical research . .

Highly recommended reading for anyone interested in migration studies.” ―International Migration Review

“Provides an exciting starting point for future debate and analysis within the field of international migration.” ―The International History Review

“An excellent collection of thoughtful and stimulating reviews, theories, and arguments about how best to conceptualize immigration, how to incorporate non-mobility in the theories of migration, and, in turn, how these fit with issues of comparative development. I know of no volume that has been as successful in integrating the thinking of sociologists, demographers, economists, and political scientists, with an anthropologist and geographer added in for wider interdisciplinary coverage.” ―Population Studies

“[The book] offers diverse and interesting perspectives and presents impressive empirical data on South to North migration” ―Cambridge Anthropology
