Long established as the leading textbook on migration and used by students and scholars alike all over the world, this fully revised and updated sixth edition continues to offer an authoritative and cutting-edge account of migration flows, why they occur, and their consequences for both origin and destination societies. International migration is one of the most emotive issues of our times, reforging societies around the world and shaping debates on security, national identity and sovereignty in profound ways. The expert authors of this book provide a truly global and interdisciplinary introduction to this perennially important topic, with chapters covering all of the world’s regions and spanning the nineteenth century to the present day. Exploring the significance of migration in relation to recent events and emerging trends, from the policies of the European Union to the Great Recession, this text helps to shed light on the often large gap between the rhetoric and realities of migration.

For students of migration studies in disciplines as wide ranging as Politics, Sociology, Geography, Area Studies, Anthropology and History this is an indispensable guide, whether already familiar with the subject matter or approaching the topic for the first time.

The Age of Migration is published by Macmillan Education. In the United States and its dependencies, Canada, Mexico and the Philippines, it is distributed under licence by Guildford Press.

The Age of Migration offers the most comprehensive guide to understanding global migration patterns, both historically and in the present day, and the latest edition only confirms this assessment. Drawing expertly on the latest theories and evidence, the authors illuminate the causes of international migration as well as the consequences for the societies that send and receive the resulting flows of people. Their critical assessment of the policies by which nations attempt to manage these flows is a must-read for policy makers and the public alike. – Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University, USA
At a time when migration has become profoundly integral to social, economic and political change across the global stage, The Age of Migration gives us an incisive, state-of-the-art, yet accessible account of migratory processes and their implications for increasingly interconnected and diversifying societies. Updated with recent statistics and expanded to include forms of mobility linked to education, marriage, retirement and temporary labour migration, the sixth edition confirms its longstanding place on the book shelves of scholars and students of global migrations. – Brenda Yeoh, National University of Singapore
For scholars and students alike, The Age of Migration remains the most comprehensive guide to global mobility. The authors bring clarity to this complex phenomenon by addressing key theories and debates, regional patterns and histories, and emergent developments. The sixth edition, simply outstanding, updates this essential resource with new sections on emigration and migration governance, among others. – Kristin Surak, SOAS, UK
The latest edition of The Age of Migration provides an expanded and detailed assessment of global migration patterns within a comparative context. It provides a sophisticated account of how these patterns speak back to and are informed by theories of migration. This will make a great addition to scholars and students of migration. – Vince Marotta, Deakin University, Australia
Theoretically sophisticated and empirically wide-ranging, The Age of Migration keeps on getting better with each edition. With new, revised and updated chapters this is essentially a new book. Whether as core or background reading, using this textbook in your migration course is a no-brainer. – Maarten Vink, Maastricht University, the Netherlands
Migration is a transformative force. At a time when it seems that everybody has an opinion on international migration, The Age of Migration remains the go-to reference to learn about international migration in many of its aspects – it reliably informs and solidly sobers a field of knowledge that is often riddled with prejudice. The sixth edition combines consistency of argument with exposition of data that broadens beyond an exclusive Western-centric perspective and is more expansive on a variety of theoretical lenses woven through the chapters through which learning about and understanding of international migration can be approached. The Age of Migration occupies a central place in migration studies. – Christina Oelgemoller, Loughborough University, UK
By now a classic text on international migration, this sixth edition of The Age of Migration is the best so far. Understanding cross-border mobility is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, and this volume sets the gold standard for studies of migration across both the Western and the non-Western world. A must read for students, scholars, and policymakers alike. – Gerasimos Tsourapas, University of Birmingham, UK
The authors have updated the fifth edition to produce this definitive text on migration. New sections ensure that the book offers a rigorous and critical analysis of migration covering migration theories, patterns of migration, gender and migration and much more besides. Consequently, it will be useful to students, researchers and policymakers alike. The book challenges popular myths about migration, including that it is a peculiarity to the modern age, offering robust evidence to dispel such misconceptions. I strongly recommend The Age of Migration. – Ruth McAreavey, Newcastle University, UK
The Age of Migration remains the most comprehensive book on contemporary international migration to date, and has become a key text for both students and instructors of migration around the world. This sixth edition is further enriched by drawing attention to internal migration, migration and climate change, as well as excellent coverage of migration and development in origin societies, whilst also emphasising the importance of cross-cutting issues such as gender, race and racism. Above all, the effort to de-centre the Eurocentric experience in migration studies is a much-needed contribution to de-colonisation debates that are long overdue. The book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand contemporary global migrations and their role in transforming societies. An excellent resource! – Julie Vullnetari, University of Southampton, UK
The updated version of The Age of Migration is perhaps the most comprehensive book available for studies in migration and migration literature more broadly. While drawing on earlier versions, the authors have significantly added and updated migration dynamics that impact twenty-first-century global migration experiences, allowing contemporary readers to engage with migration issues that are real to them and their world today. The comprehensive coverage of global migration processes, the language and re-structuring of the content, the accessibility and readability of the material, and the use of up-to-date data and examples mean that students can selectively and effectively draw from different parts of the book related to their particular interest or the focus of the undergraduate course curriculum. – David Radford, University of South Australia
In times such as ours, in which migration has become a divisive topic that dominates public debates around the world, there is a dire need for facts, for a careful consideration of the multiplicity and complexity of issues that come under the umbrella term of migration. The Age of Migration introduces the reader to the ‘deep’ story of migration – it shows us that it is inconceivable to disregard the social and economic forces that lie behind the movement of people across borders, that the world is interconnected and its problems cannot be treated in isolation. It is truly an enjoyable and engaging book that will be fascinating both to the first-year student, the postgraduate interested in comparative research and the seasoned migration-focused academic. – Neli Demireva, University of Essex, UK
