What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“Well researched and well written. This is the perfect book for anyone interested in our mobile global community.” 
Graeme Harper, Oakland University

“What I have read is fantastic! — Africa’s diasporic complexities, the role of ports and shipping routes in shaping migration, the migration of scholars in medieval times— these are just some of the subjects that point to the unusually interesting and original scholarship covered by this five volume encyclopedia of migrations.” 
Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology and co-chair, Committee on Global Thought, Columbia University, and author of Territory, Authority, Rights: From Medieval to Global Assemblages (2006)

“A vital tool for scholars, advocates, and activists committed to global struggles for justice for peoples in movement, including unprecedented depth regarding especially marginalized sectors such as indigenous peoples. It makes a unique contribution to ongoing organizing efforts to secure full recognition throughout the world for a universal right of human mobility, the right to migrate, and not to be forced to migrate or to be displaced, as integral aspects of the overall struggle for global justice and against the criminalization of migrants.” 
Camilo Pérez-Bustillo, Research Professor, Human Rights Program, Autonomous University of Mexico City; member, International Committee, World Social Forum on Migrations, 2007-2011; Coordinator, International Tribunal of Conscience of Peoples in Movement

 “This is a sound and serious excavation of the huge and varied literature on migration.  An invaluable tool for scholars and serious readers.” 
Frances Fox Piven, professor of Political Science and Sociology, The Graduate Center, City University of New York, and author of Challenging Authority: How Ordinary People Change America (2006), and coauthor (with Lorraine Minnite and Margaret Groarke) of Keeping Down the Black Vote: Race and the Demobilization of American Voters (2009)
