From acculturation to undocumented immigration, the authors consider more than three dozen concepts at the heart of migration studies. Clearly written in a highly readable style, the book is a valuable resource for students and scholars alike."
- Nancy Foner, City University of New York
"This very useful and authoritative compendium explicates thirty-eight concepts central to analysis of international migration.
