Migration, Incorporation, and Change in an Interconnected World

Routledge introduces a thought provoking new book exploring the relationship between migration, globalisation, and society. 

With people across the globe becoming displaced by war or natural disaster, or moving freely in search of a better quality of life, migration is one of the great issues of our time. As migration continues to affect a growing number of people, often entire communities, this book  represents a timely and welcome insight into the key debates and trends surrounding the topic. 

The book doesn’t shy away from the big political issues, and includes a dedicated chapter on ‘Muslims in the US and Western Europe’. These ideas are examined from multiple angles and perspectives making this much more than a simple relaying of facts.  

“The story of migration is far too unruly to be contained within disciplinary boundaries. With this book, the authors have achieved the near-impossible; they have woven a complex set of arguments into a compelling and teachable narrative. This is a great resource…”— Raza Mir, Seymour Hyman Professor of Management, William Paterson University

“This book is a much-needed and refreshing look into the globalized nature of contemporary migration that highlights lesser-known aspects such as temporary workers, expatriates, and Muslims in Europe, and by distilling important academic theories, concepts, and analysis of contemporary immigration into a more accessible text that will hopefully reach a wider, more popular audience.”— C.N. Le, Sociology, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
