"The extraordinary success of The Age of Migration lies in its presentation of the first comprehensive analysis of international migration as a global process. Successive editions have provided overall accounts of migration patterns across time and space, and have examined ways that migration is shaped by, and in turn affects, the structure of the international system. This updated third edition incorporates important recent developments in these processes. It also includes a completely new chapter addressing recently heightened concerns about the impact of migration on issues of security and sovereignty. It thus becomes the new essential text for the study of international migration."
--Jeffrey G. Reitz, University of Toronto, Canada
"This thoroughly revised third edition provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the main trends in international migration across much of the globe and a state-of-the-art commentary on the burgeoning migration literature. The authors keep pace with rapidly changing circumstances that shorten the half-lives of generalizations about migration and quickly date textbooks....[The authors'] exposition is a model of clarity and avoids asserting either the death of sovereignty or the popular but contradictory claims that the policies of the receiving states are uniformly restrictive, anti-immigrant, and ineffective."
--Gary Freeman, University of Texas at Austin
"Without doubt, this book remains the most comprehensive and accessible introduction to the multiple aspects of population movements around the globe, from migration trends and policies to issues of immigrant incorporation and anti-immigrant politics. It weaves together theoretical perspectives with rich, up-to-date, empirical detail; identifies problems associated with migration; advances solutions; and provides extensive references for further study. Undergraduate and graduate students, the interested public, and scholars will profit from reading this book."
--Helga Leitner, University of Minnesota
"This is an excellent book, written in a polemical style that invites reaction and response....Challenging and interesting. ...Should run into many more editions."
--Journal of International Migration and Integration (on the previous edition)
