Overview

This four-volume reference contains 28 articles, selected from such publications as the J. of Development Economics, J. of Political Economy, and Population Research and Policy Review, among other journals and some books, dating from 1962 to 1997. The editors supply an introduction identifying criteria for selection: they've included milestone or highly influential papers (especially those that have not been made available or summarized elsewhere); they've balance work related to North America, Europe, and Australia; and they've focused on empirical papers rather than theoretical background. Each volume is organized around a theme: the migration decision and immigration policy (v.1), assimilation of migrants (v.2), quality and behavior of migrants (v.3), and migration and the natives (v.4). Each volume has a name index but no subject index. The editors are economists with the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA), Bonn, Germany, among other affiliations. Annotation c.
