An essential introduction to `Migration' that is international in scope and rigorous in its attention to the scholars, nuances and debates in the field. -- Maggie O'Neill
It is impressive how the authors can bring out the most central scholarly debates on, for instance, a concept of `ethnicity' in just a few pages. It draws on most of the revenant scholars within the field... This is a very good and useful tool. The sections are furthermore ended with a number of suggestions for further key readings that overall include much of the relevant literature. . -- Martin Bak Jorgensen, Aalborg University
