Written by an international team of academics and experienced practitioners, this volume brings together scholarship on international academic migrants to the United States - the world's top recipient of academic talent.

Past understandings of "brain drain" are insufficient to understand the transnational and often multi-directional flows of academic migrants today. Instead, a more nuanced understanding of their migration patterns and decision-making is essential if the opportunities presented by these cross-border flows are to be realized.
