Overview

The United States in the last half century has undergone rapid and fundamental changes as economic restructuring, aging, and increasing cultural and ethnic diversity profoundly alter its national character. This groundbreaking book examines the links between migration and the ongoing economic and demographic revolution. Utilizing an explicitly geographic perspective, the contributors highlight the crucial role played by scale and spatial context in both immigration and internal migration. They show that the economic and demographic restructuring underway is a distinctly geographic phenomenon with immense variation over region and locale. Bringing together the leading migration scholars from geography, economics, sociology, and demography, this multidisciplinary collection represents the cutting edge in the field and explores important implications for future research.

Contributions by: Jessica L. Baraka, Lawrence A. Brown, William A. V. Clark, Brian Cushing, Gordon F. De Jong, Scott Digiacinto, Thomas J. Espenshade, Anthony Falit-Baiamonte, William H. Frey, Patricia Gober, Gregory A. Huber, Kao-Lee Liaw, Linda Lobao, Donald L. McGuinness, Eric G. Moore, Richard Morrill, K. Bruce Newbold, Kavita Pandit, David A. Plane, Peter A. Rogerson, Brigitte Waldorf, John F. Watkins, and Suzanne Davies Withers.

Editorial Reviews

Sais Review
The strength of this book lies in its wide applicability. It includes geographic analysis, but then amplifies traditional paradigms to include a mix of economic and demographic methodology and theoretical frameworks. . . . All three sections of the book include a wealth of data and useful material, some of which is a thorough compilation and presentation of existing information, while some is more original and current research. . . . [The book] effectively underscores and illustrates the complexities and benefits of interdisciplinary approaches in migration research.
Regional Studies
Sixteen mostly excellent chapters on a range of topics and interrelationships, at a variety of spatial scales, are organized into three sections.
International Journal Of Population Geography
This edited volume successfully excavates some of the complex interrelationships between migration behaviour and contemporary socio-economic restructuring in the U.S. The editors provide brief introductory and concluding chapters that help the reader to organize and digest the various themes and approaches.
Urban Studies
Migration research has a long and rich history within the field of geography. This volume provides a very nice picture of the depth at which geographers have interrogated this pervasive phenomenon. The collection is a solid and coherent examination of migration within the context of changing economic and demographic structures in the 1980s and 1990s. The contributions are well connected and speak to one another creating a natural flow from one topic to another.
Population Studies
It contains some excellent papers drawing on the latest research of many senior and well-respected migration experts. The book serves a very useful purpose in bringing these chapters together.
Stephen A. Matthews
An impressive entry into the field of migration studies and economic restructuring. The book's breadth of coverage will establish it as an essential reference. The analysis is clear and effectively summarizes known and current research in this broad area.
