Publications in this field have, in general, been based predominantly on the experiences of individual national settings. Migration, Health and Survival offers a comparative approach, bringing together leading international scholars to provide original works from the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, England and Wales, Norway, Belgium, and Italy. Variations in physical and mental health and mortality among migrants in relation to their host populations are examined and analysed in detail, with specific discussion of: the immigrant health and mortality advantage; the healthy migrant hypothesis; migrants as vulnerable populations; the long-term effects of acculturation on health; fast epidemiological transition among migrants; and the intergenerational transmission of mortality risk. The contributions in this volume enhance the reader's understanding of immigrant health and mortality conditions across these leading countries of immigration in the western world. This is an important reference for researchers of migrant studies as well as teachers of graduate level courses in population studies and allied disciplines. Practitioners involved in the provision of health care to immigrants and refugees will further benefit from the insightful analyses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This work provides a rigorous review of factors predicting the health and mortality of immigrants both in the short and long term: healthy migrant selection effects are contrasted with the negative acculturation, blockages in labor markets, pre-immigration exposure to trauma among refugees, and other factors which can pose threats to health. Trovato concludes his book with an integrative model which is vital to understanding and tracking the health of the millions of asylum seekers and refugees in today's world.' -- Steven Stack, Wayne State University, US
`This edited volume is a timely addition to the burgeoning field of international migration and its health consequences. Frank Trovato has brought together a cadre of renowned researchers from the US, Canada, Australia and four European countries who explicate the multidimensional effects of migration on morbidity and mortality and situate the findings in time, place and culture. Together, these chapters offer an informative look at the fluidity of immigration patterns and their health exigencies in a global context.' -- Andrew V. Wister, Simon Fraser University, Canada
