`This is an extremely impressive volume which guides readers into thinking about migration in new ways. In its various chapters, international experts examine contemporary migration issues through a multitude of lenses ranging from child labor, human trafficking and jobs to the political economy of migration and refugees. The result is a fascinating assessment of the role of migration in driving population change in the modern age. This will surely serve as a reference volume for those interested in migration for years to come.' -- Deborah Cobb-Clark, Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, Australia
`A comprehensive, truly encyclopedic collection of original surveys and essays discussing migration and topics related to the movement of people among countries and areas. The studies both present and review the literature critically and in many cases offer new results. The basic theory is laid out right from the start, providing a nice introduction and framework for the other 27 chapters. While most are interesting and worth reading, as a novice in the field of migration I found the essays on human smuggling and natural disasters to be particularly enlightening and important. I can recommend this Handbook to any labor economist or sociologist with a scholarly interest, either for research or for instruction, in this general area. The volume is definitive.' -- Daniel S. Hamermesh, University of Texas at Austin, US and Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
`As immigration has spread from traditional receiving nations to developed countries throughout the world, the economics of migration has become a burgeoning field of research. Amelie Constant and Klaus Zimmermann's International Handbook offers an excellent, state-of-the-art guide to the rapidly changing intellectual terrain, providing comprehensive coverage of the topics necessary to comprehend patterns and processes of migration in the world today. It will be an indispensable guide to scholars and policy-makers for years to come.' -- Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University, US
`The International Handbook on the Economics of Migration is an excellent book that broadens our understanding of the economics of migration. It covers classic issues related to immigration such as labor market integration and wages as well as much newer and less explored aspects of it, such as happiness, religiosity and crime. I commend Constant and Zimmermann for gathering an excellent team of young and more experienced scholars, and for producing a book that will become an important reference in teaching and learning about immigration.' -- Giovanni Peri, University of California, Davis, US
