The Age of Migration has been the main textbook for migration studies since it first appeared in 1993; I have relied on it 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. The authors are to be commended for addressing critical issues in a time of global change.
The leading text in the field, this authoritative work offers a global perspective on the nature of migration flows, why they occur, and their consequences for both origin and destination societies. Chapters provide up-to-date descriptions and comparative analyses of major migration regions in the North and South. The role of population movements in the formation of ethnic minority groups is examined, as is the impact of growing ethnic diversity on economies, cultures, and political institutions. Useful pedagogical features include accessible boxed examples, tables, maps, and suggestions for further reading. The companion website features an online-only chapter, additional case studies, links to relevant resources, and migration photos.
