Migration is a central dynamic in globalization that is recasting contemporary states and societies in distinctive, powerful ways. Now with more balanced coverage of Western and non-Western regions, this leading text has been revised and updated with the latest theories, policy information, and interdisciplinary research. The book explores the causes, dynamics, and consequences of international population movements, as well as the experiences of migrants themselves. Chapters examine migration trends and patterns in all major world regions, how migration transforms both destination and origin societies, and the effects of migration and increasing ethnic diversity on national identity and politics. Useful pedagogical features include boxed case studies; extensive tables, graphs, and maps; end-of-chapter Guides to Further Reading; and a companion website with additional case studies, PowerPoint slides, and other resources for students and instructors.

  • Chapter on the evolution and effectiveness of migration policies.
  • Chapter on how migration affects origin countries.
  • Expanded coverage of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
  • Analyses of timely topics, including anti-immigrant politics and Islamophobia; migration policies under Trump; large-scale refugee movements; the growth of new types of mobility for such purposes as education, marriage or retirement; and the tools governments use to control migration (the "Migration Policy Toolbox").
