This extensive survey of migration in the modern world begins in the sixteenth century with the establishment of European colonies overseas, and covers the history of migration to the late twentieth century. In ninety-five contributions, leading scholars consider issues such as migration patterns, the flights of refugees and illegal migration. As the most wide-ranging coverage of migration in a single volume, The Cambridge Survey of World Migration will be an indispensable tool for scholars and students across a range of disciplines.
