This fascinating book examines rural retirement migration from the older in-migrants' perspective and from the vantage point of the destination communities to which they move. This integrated approach permits the authors to view older in-migrants as embedded in environments that facilitate and/or constrain their opportunities for productive living during older age. It also permits the examination of positive and negative effects of older in-migration for destination communities.

From the reviews: "David Brown and Nina Glasgow's book contributes to this discussion by analyzing the distribution and effects of retirement migration in the USA to rural regions. This is not just another book; it is a necessary book, the result of plentiful research and of a balanced work project. A valuable instrument for researchers of international retirement migration." Environment and Planning A, 2009. Volume 41 "Overall, this book is enjoyable, informative, and relevant. Rural Retirement Migration was written prior to the official onset of the current economic recession, but its findings offer key insights." Rural Sociology, 2009. Volume 74 "The book represents a turning point in publications on rural aging. It is conceptually and methodologically sophisticated, thorough in its examination of the demographic and social issues of retirement migration, and entirely unapologetic about its focus on rural places." Contemporary Sociology, 2010, volume 39 "David L. Brown and Nina Glasgow, both sociologists at Cornell University, pose a series of questions that are ... interest to rural economic development agencies interested in attracting retiree migrants. Their book offers insights into the features of persistent rural retirement destinations, the characteristics of retiree migrants, and the economic, social, and political consequences of migration for migrants and their communities. It reveals abundant opportunities for subsequent research on these same topics." (Nancy White, Journal of Regional Science, Vol. 49 (5), December, 2009)
