The twentieth century has seen immense worldwide shifts in population. Whether it is Europe to North America, the Carribean to the United Kingdom, or East Asia to Australia, migration is one of the major factors that influences the global political and economic situation. By applying systematic theoretical frameworks to detailed empirical data, Worlds in Motion provides a unique overview of not only where migration occurs, and how it works, but crucially details the
major factors that influence international population movement.

Demetrios G. Papademetriou, Population and Development Review, Vol 26, no.1 19/07/2001 The discussion of four major theoretical traditions associated with the initiation of a migration flow. ... is intelligent and persuasive. ... The analytical treatment of the selected regions is useful and generally enhances one's understanding of the migration processes in each. ... The authors speculations are refreshingly forward-looking and worth reflecting upon regardless of one's predispositions toward theory. ... the language is direct, the theoretical
discussion eschews unnecessary jargon, neologisms are kept to a minimum, and the extensive summaries of the relevant bodies of literature are cogent. ... the volume is useful as a single source where many of the most influential migration theories are treated with clarity. ...those interested in having a
well-organized and analytically valuable thumbnail sketch of the migration subsystems in five world regions will find plenty to chew on.

Alejandro Portes, Princeton University, IMR Vol 34 25/06/2001 "This book is an invaluable contribution to the scientific research literature on international migration. ... exemplifies international scientific cooperation as its best. ... The initial theoretical review chapter ... is exemplary by its breadth and clarity of exposition. ... This is a must book for researchers of immigration and for courses on this topic."

Nicholas Van Hear, Journal of Refugee Studies Vol. 12, No.4 25/09/2000 "An extremely useful volume... Worlds in Motion displays some of the best features of migration studies."
