Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The Turbulence of Migration is an exciting and comprehensiverendition of the role and impact of migration in contemporarysocieties. Drawing on a range of theories and disciplines, itunpacks existing accounts of migration processes and suggests newways of looking at the range of phenomena that make up the "endlessmotion" of migration that shapes our everyday experiences. NikosPapastergiadis reveals himself to be one of the most importantscholars in this field.' John Solomos, South Bank University,London

'This volume is important for two reasons. First, it challengesthe social sciences to adopt a more functional and dynamic view ofculture and the "social" such that difference and culture areincorporated outside of traditional bounded unit classifications.Second, the author has presented a coherent argument forunderstanding migration as a process that stems from globalturbulence in politics, economics and social relations. This volumewould make an excellent addition to upper-year undergraduate andgradute papers in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology andgeography.' David Timothy Duval, Sociological ResearchOnline

'The volume's greatest strength is its review and critique ofcultural theorists ... It is a provocative volume that attempts toshift the paradigms through which traditional social science viewsmigration by introducing new strands of scholarship.'International Migration

'Papastergiadis spells out the consequences for multiculturalistpolicy and theory ... [His] intentions are grand: to revolutionizemigration theory and to place post-colonial theory at the heart ofa new social science of modernity.' Race andClass

'Impressive in its multidiscipinary scope, this book drawstogether a wide range of work and makes revealing juxtapositionsbetween different fields.' Progress in HumanGeography

'The Turbulence of Migration is an impressive tour deforce ... an exceptionally valuable book for those who want asophisticated, intelligent and critical primer in postmoderntheories of globalization, migration and cultural interaction.'The UTS Review
