Overview

Immigration and Migration is part of the Global Issues series, which is designed to be a first-stop resource for research on the key challenges facing the world today. Each volume contains three sections, beginning with an introduction that clearly defines the issue, followed by detailed case studies of the issue's impact in the United States and several other countries or regions. The second section draws together significant U.S. and international primary source documents, and the third section gathers useful research tools-such as brief biographies, facts and figures, an annotated bibliography, and more. A foreword written by an expert in the field complements each volume. A chronology, glossary, and index provide additional help.

From riots in France to protests in the United States, immigration remains a complicated worldwide issue. Immigration and Migration offers insight into a controversial topic by discussing the underlying motivations that prompt people to leave their countries, such as to escape poverty or war or to seek political asylum. The book also explores the financial, cultural, and social contributions immigrants/migrants make to their adopted countries, as well as the difficulties they face, including problems with assimilation, racial biases, and illegal immigration.

After presenting a historical overview of the influence of migration on developing civilizations, the book focuses on five particular countries: the United States, Mexico, France, the Philippines, and South Africa. It provides an outline of each country's current immigration policy and delves into their historical development. Specific examples within each section clarify how immigration andmigration affected the country and its citizens and effected changes in national policies.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Writer and editor Bailey (Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance) here explores the underlying motivations of those who leave their countries to live elsewhere and looks at the impact, both positive and negative, on their adopted countries. After presenting a historical overview of the global consequences of migration, Bailey focuses on the United States, though he also turns his attention to such countries as Mexico, France, the Philippines, and South Africa. Each country's development and current policy are outlined, with specific examples showing how migration and immigration have affected them; the book's central section presents selected primary-source documents illustrating this analysis. The book concludes with a useful collection of facts and statistics regarding immigration and migration in the relevant countries, as well as a glossary of key players, a chronology, and several lists of resources for further research. The "How To Research" chapter is especially enlightening and accessible for high school students.
