"Heike C. Alberts and Helen D. Hazen have gathered together an impressive group of authors who offer compelling insights into contemporary patterns of international academic migration. This book identifies many of the key opportunities afforded by internationalization for enhancing academic practice and higher learning, yet it does not shy away from also addressing the real challenges facing foreign-born faculty and students and the need to adapt and improve support systems for helping them transition to a new life and ultimately find success in their academic pursuits."
- Michael Solem, Association of American Geographers, USA
"With this book, Alberts and Hazen are making a timely and extremely valuable contribution to contemporary debates concerning highly skilled and international student migration. This collection of essays, by internationally acclaimed scholars in the field, provides a unique perspective on academic mobility in all its diversity by including students at different 'levels' along with scholars. The practical focus on the United States is welcomed and reflects the continued, if dwindling, dominant position of the US in global mobility flows. This allows readers to engage critically with the changing geographies of intellectual power."
- Johanna L. Waters, University of Birmingham, UK
"Heike C. Alberts and Helen D. Hazen offer a highly readable collection on the changing patterns of the burgeoning international participation in higher education in the United States while simultaneously exploring the dynamics of 'brain circulation' with home countries. Though not autobiographical, their insightful identification of issues reflects their personal histories as international students and now faculty. Especially valuable is the use of research findings to offer ways of enhancing practices in the classroom and for support services."
