Catapulted is a unique contribution to the literature on migration as it relates skilled labor migration particularly to the displacement of youth. Studies of the Albanian diaspora are often limited to European locations, but Ellis addresses Albanian migration to alternative destinations such as Turkey and the United States. Gender dynamics, as well as generational differences, form a significant component of the book, complementing similar work on Southeast Europe. Given the small number of books on life course perspectives on youth migration and integration, Catapulted illuminates the Balkan experience in comparison to youth from North Africa, Middle East and Southeast Asia.
